Hullo all!

Yup!  Makes a good starting point.  Still, a webscript that allows the user to easily "deviate" from BioSQL structure (via a re-mapping) sounds tempting...  =)

Btw, on another topic, I noticed that different app servers have different means of receiving requests and returning data.  Some, like NCBI, provide easy to use features like eFetch/eSearch, while others make it difficult to automate the procedure.  Does anyone know
of a site that discusesses these (the different Bio servers available on the Net)?
