For the Haemophilus entries this makes much more sense. These share a common
secondary accession number (for the entire genome) which is not much use
for the cross-referencing (a Haemophilus entry in EMNEW would pick
up *all* Haemophilus entries in EMBL by cross-reference this way.

These would be better linked by entry name (which I will switch to for now
at Sanger) or primary accession number (sounds like a job for ICARUS)
