Yes. Tested and known to work in 2.9.0 - probably worked in earlier releases, 
but not for all variations.

You can also include everything and use a list for the exclude value.

Tricky. Entret specifically reports the original text. seqret parses it, uses 
it, and reports what it can in the output format.

Yes, seqret shoould parse out and retain more information (no doubt you have 
noticed that the -feat option does retain the feature table). I will take a 
look at how much of EMBL, GenBank and SwissProt formats can be preserved.

But we will still need entret.

To be included as a beta version in the next release.

Knee deep? I hope that was a compliment :-)
