To enable the reading of PDB file, I added some code that converts
the three letter code for the amino acid to a string of 1-letter
code. Right now it is in readPDBFile in BCSequenceIO. After fiddling
with subdictionaries and arrays, I suddenly realized it would be
easier with using a symbolset.
I will commit the code if cvs lets me, so it might take a while for
the code is available. In the meantime, I have these questions:
1. Maybe we should move this to a separate method, in case there are
more file formats that use the three letter code? (I guess the answer
2. Are there three letter codes for nucleotides as well? In that case
the code could be more generalized.
I will also add some code to do the reverse.
