[Biococoa-dev] Using an untyped class sequence

Nice discussion! But indeed the question which hasn't been answered  
by both pros and contras, can the symbolset provide the error  
checking and return value customisation to such a level that we don't  
need the typed sequences. Note that we could provide much of this in  
the BCSequence methods and I personally think it would be possible,  
which would give us one unified interface to BCSequence. What do you  
think? Charles did I now get it right, that you actually are thinking  
of only the typed versions? What's your viewpoint on this?

     65 million years ago, there were more
                      dinosaurs than humans.
          Where are the dinosaurs now?
