    """Loads a Stockholm file from PFAM into SeqRecord objects.

    The entire file is loaded, and any sequence can be accessed using
    the [index] notation.

    This parser will detect if the Stockholm file follows the PFAM conventions
    for sequence specific meta-data (lines starting #=GS and #=GR) and
    populates the SeqRecord fields accordingly.
    Any annotation which does not follow the PFAM conventions is currently

    If an accession is provided for an entry in the meta data, IT WILL NOT
    be used as the record.id (it will be recorded in the record's annotations).
    This is because some files have (sub) sequences from different parts of
    the same accession (differentiated by different start-end positions).

    Wrap-around alignments are not supported - each sequences must be on
    a single line.  However, interlaced sequences should work.
