    Format processor for handling EMBL records and similar files. This takes a very simple approach: all `normal' attribute lines are passed to the listener as a tag (first two characters) and a value (the rest of the line from the 6th character onwards). Any data between the special `SQ' line and the "//" entry terminator is passed as a SymbolReader.

    This low-level format processor should normally be used in conjunction with one or more `filter' objects, such as EmblProcessor.

    Many ideas borrowed from the old EmblFormat processor by Thomas Down and Thad Welch.
