OK, so you really meant it ;-)

I really think this is too much!! Grouping atoms, residues and  
symbols under a same superclass makes sense. But the BCSequence  
object is really a collection of such things, so it is really weird  
to have that under the same class tree. Also, I agree that it has the  
same physical properties, as it is a moelcule too. But for some  
reason, it seems you have some kind of mass spec bias. I don't know  
where that comes from ;-)

I think haveing the sequence objects in the same class hierarchy  
would be confusing and overkill. What do the others think?
