Doing what Fahim suggests internally in writeFASTA has been on my todo
list for a while, and it will significantly speed up the writing of
fasta files with many small records. Guess I should do it now, and
cross it off my list.
But Fahim: I am not sure it is possible to do what you want to do with
the current function (at least if you are using Biostrings), but I
could be wrong. If you want to investigate further, note that the
file can be a connection (?connection).
