I will if you'd like, but only if you don't mind - it's bad enough
that I've inadvertently dumped all over all the work you've just
done without me editing it without asking first...

Presuming you don't mind, code-wise, here is what I'll do:

1."wrap" the existing parser functions into classes 
complete with file reading code

2.add instantiation of the (filetype)_parser class 

3.edit the fetch() function to reflect that it's calling a
method from the filetype parser instead of one of its own

4.create a "seq_factory.inc.php" class to churn out the sequence

5.move the creation of the seq object up to the "Parse" class, via
the "seq_factory".

Sounds okay?
