We thought about this in the past - codons are very tricky, because they
have both an amino acid component and a sequence component.  They don't fit
very conveniently into the Symbol model.  I think it might be easier to
remove the BCCodonSequence class from the sequence inheritance - it's mostly
there to prevent duplication of code.
