Re: Taxa Id from blast report

I agree they have finally listened and added features requested by users but I've been suggesting they have
a compressed output format available from eutils or genbank for years but have made no headway ;- (
What's so hard about gzip'ping the output? I'm sure it would go a long way toward solving all the problems we
get with truncated replies from queries!!

NCBI has been much more receptive of user input over the last several years, much more so than in the past.  I
understand the reasoning for dropping BLAST support (though there were definitely needless bumps in
that process).
