I am not sure if I follow this. As soon as a sequence is created, the
symbolset is defined. So there is no need to iterate over all
symbolsets to find out if a certain operation is possible. For
convenience, we could extend BCSymbolSet with a method
"containsNucleotides" that will return yes is the objects in the set
are of that type.
