One reason why I want to move to BLAST 2.2.25+ on our local
machine is they fixed the subject IDs in tabular output, so that I
can now use BLAST to compare two FASTA files against each
other for a reciprocal best hits (RBH) search. I've just pushed the
first draft of this to my bit-bucket,


The idea behind this tool is to allow RBH to be done using any
suitable tabular input - including but not limited to the BLAST
tabular output (which can also be mimicked by other tools such
as Bill Pearson's FASTA).

I'm hoping this will be accepted into Galaxy later on (it is not
ready yet), but I will need some help with this issue first:
