Okay, the BCGeneticCode bug should be fixed.  So much for focusing on PHP
for the weekend....

One aside  related to the superclass lookup issue:  I think we should keep
in mind that a lot of what people are going to be using the framework for is
with very long arrays of symbols (ie - sequences).  Given that, anything we
can do to speed up something done within our BCSymbols is likely to have a
very significant impact on general usage.  Initialization activities are
always going to be slow, but we should try to optimize everything else as
much as reasonably possible.

I guess the symbols are singletons, so caching superclass method addresses
is going to be very effective in this example.  Even so, I hate situations
where something is slow the first time, then much faster after that....
