I tried this, but srsbuild broke with the symptoms that EMBL features
were indexed twice. That broke searches like [emblnew-pid:pid]
which gave the dreaded 'no library with ID "0"' message and
a getz -lv '[[emblnew-pid:*] showed all PIDs indexed twice.

Adding debug statements to confirmed this. Weird.
