Why do my dbNSFP annotations have "|" separating identical values?

You may have seen dbNSFP annotations with identical values separated by pipes. For example, 0.30748|0.30748. This happens when Oncotator matches more than one dbNSFP record to the given variant.

Comma cannot be used as a delimiter, as you get parsing errors when multiple variants are listed on one line in an output VCF.
