Thanks for the code Andrew! Eventually, we hope to incorporate
algorithms such as yours within the Bio::Tools:: modules. Where it
will end up, I can't say at this point. But whatever muse inspires you 
to crank out perl code, I hope you keep it happy. :-}

All code in the bioperl is covered under the same terms as Perl, which 
gives you the choice of either the GNU GPL or the Artistic lIcense that 
comes with the Perl distribution:

I'm not familiar with the Python license, but I'd image it is
something similar? We would place something like the following in code
that you contribute: 

# Copyright (c) 1999 by Andrew Dalke and Bioreason, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
#           This module is free software; you can redistribute it and/or 
#           modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.
#           Retain this notice and note any modifications made.

The (c) line would also include names of anyone else that works on on
integrating it into bioperl. Sound good?
