you mean by contributes_to, the NOT operator etc?
should be a wiki item...
unfortunately it is expensive to pre-compute the gp counts in any way
that a single gp can end up in two partitions.
we currently partition by gp db name - no gp can be in > 1. this has
the advantage that we can get the correct total by summing the
numbers at query time.
however, if we have a partition that does not split gps in this way
we can't sum across the partitions, which means we have to pre-
compute for all combinations.
This may not be so bad for the qualifiers however, since the
qualifiers are relatively rare.
would you really want this for the NOT operator though? remember the
semantics are easy to get confused here. Would you want:
all gps that are NOT GPCRs (ie include those that are asserted not-TM
receptor in the count) - negation propagates up the graph
all gps that have a NOT annotation to some kind of GPCR - negation
propagates as normal
