All on my wish list too.

At the Sanger Centre I suspect we will have to keep SRS4 running for
some of our scripts for a while, though there are so many nice ways to
reformat the output in SRS 5 that it should be possible to move many
of them without too much effort.

certainly the old "-t" and "-d" would be very welcome.
So too would the return of the entryname report.

Changing "-f def" to "-f des" is another difference that hits our scripts.
There are plenty more.

But overall, SRS 5 is *so* much nicer. Especially for cross-referencing
queries and for customising the database parsing.
