The new indexing programs dbx... don't have the old file size limit of 2
So dbiblast has this limit and in addition it supports only the old blast
index format.
There is no documentation about the new blast index format from ncbi,
this format is not supported by emboss.
The old blast indices can't be created by the latest formatdb versions so
I think this is the reason, why Alan did
not write a new dbxblast.
