> I agree with you. I like the BCSequenceAlignment version.

So there is my new idea:

You can see a alignment-algorithms as convenient constructors of a 
BCAlignment (or BCSequenceAlignment), so we could have categories for 
BCAlignment like

@interface BCAlignment ( PairwiseAlignment )

+ (BCAlignment *)needlemanWunschAlignment......
+ (BCAlignment *)smithWatermanAlignment....


@interface BCAlignment ( MultipleAlignment )

+ (BCAlignment *)clustalWAlignment.....


so everybody who wants to add alignment algorithms do that in additions 

Just another idea ....
