I am not sure if I understand why we need a BCSequenceNucleotide (and 
BCSymbolNucleotide) class. There are only a few methods in both 
subclasses, so right now I don't see the need for an additional layer 
that takes care of those methods. Maybe you can refresh my memory?


- Koen.

PS, what probably needs some more thoughts is to create a similar 
structure for the BCSymbol classes that we have just introduced for the 
BCSequence classes.
