I know we can't get around the problem of the IDs, since blast & blast -m8
give different IDs. But columns 5 and 6 (mismatches, gap openings) are
consistently different. Is search2table not trying to mimic -m8 exactly, or
is this a bug?

Apologies if this is due to using bioperl 1.4 and the PLS script from
1.5.0-RC1. That's what I have on hand.

I could steal that. But I was thinking that if NCBI changes the BLAST
format, bioperl may upgrade while the dead trees code won't.
