[Biococoa-dev] initWithSymbol

While you are on it, it would be nice to replace the methods '+aaForChar' and '+baseForChar' with a unique name like '+symbolForChar' in the subclasses. I have some ugly code in symbol set class that tests the kind of class just to know which method to call. In the case of this method, having the same name makes sense (polymorphism!).

Now that I think about it, funny how '+symbolForChar' and '-initWithChar' will have different and not so obvious meaning... I have to look at the code, I am not so sure now what the difference is!
