+Bio.Entrez.efetch and rettype="genbank"
+As of Easter 2009, the NCBI have stopped supporting the unofficial return type
+of "genbank" in EFetch. Instead we should be using "gb" (GenBank) or "gp"
+(GenPept). Bio.Entrez.efetch will correct this automatically, but issues a
+deprecation warning.
Declared obsolete in Release 1.50, and is likely to be deprecated in a future
