I wanted the Email address in the address section, and the journal had to 
be told a couple of times to leave it in ...  and _I_ took the Email addresses 
out of a methods section because between the submission of the paper and the 
galleys the genbank FASTA/BLAST server had moved from IntelliGenetics to 
NCBI ...  a no win situation  :-)

(watch for new email address rsn ;)
