I'm still reading, but I get the picture now - great expansion!

I am thinking how this will be used. The end user probably wants to try 
out one type of alignment, see the result, then try another one, 
compare the results, etc. So if we make a BCNeedlemanWunsch, and then a 
BCSmithWaterman where is the actual matrix that is used to calculate. I 
think it is a good idea if we have just one matrix, that is used as a 
basis for each different calculation. It would be a waste if for every 
calculation the starting matrix has to be re-calculated. Or maybe 
that's where BCMatrix comes in place?
