Thanks Alex,

I was struggling some more with the Translation demo to get your  
sample file to work. Apparently hard-coding the path as we do now is  
not a good approach (at least in my hands). So I was thinking to add  
your openPanel code to the Translation demo. Or even better, we could  
have an openPanel controller class in our BCAppKit that can be used  
in various programs. It could then also be used to get sequences  
using NSURL.

Let me know what you guys think of this approach, so I can start  
working on that class (BCSequenceIOController seems like a useful  
name). I won't have much time today though, it's going to be > 25 ûC,  
so I don't feel like sitting behind my computer :)
