The version of GenPept that I distribute from is entirely 
derived from the GenBank "/translation=" feature qualifiers (see 1.4.6 in the 
GenPept 77.0 release notes).  According to the GenBank Release 77.0 release 
notes, the "/translation=" data is "automatically generated".  I can't say
whether or not the program used by the NCBI folks is utilizing an ORF 
identification scheme to generate this information.  Would anyone from NCBI
like to comment?
