[BiO BB] Automated upstream region sequence retrieval

I am looking for a way to automate the retrieval of upstream regions
of genes (from fully sequenced genomes). I have tried the R/BioMart
route, but the organisms I want are not available in BioMart (yet).

Does one of the Bio modules of i.e Python/Java/PERL support this

I want to put up a little internal web-service for promoter searches,
for which the desired gene ID (GenBankId) would be entered and the
~2kb upstream region returned.

Thanx, in advance
