Ah, I remember. Yes, that's a fool guard I had built in when 454 came into the 
game and gap4 directories regularly had half a million or millions of entries 
... which lets filesystems get exteremely slow and system admins despair when 
running overnight backups.

Do you have a compelling reason *not* to use the CAF files which are written by 
default? If yes I could remove it, but please note that CAFs can be 
transformed into a gap4 database via the "caf2gap" command (from the Sanger 
Centre) or to a gap4 directory with the "convert_project" command (from the 
MIRA package).
