Happy new year, and good to see you're still alive :)

If they are all hidden inside a class cluster, it looks like a good
compromise to me.

Actually the code in BCSequenceDNA and BCSequenceRNA has been cleaned
up a lot by putting many methods in BCTools, so is not an issue for me
anymore :) So I am not sure at this point what would be the benefit of
adding an additional BCSequenceNucleotide class.

Those are also my thoughts a class cluster. It looks a very nice idea,
but it's still unclear to me if our situation is a good example for the
introduction of class clusters.
