Hi Lorenz:

A modest suggestion:

How about using the Mac program "DNA Strider" as a model for GUI
functionality?  It is one of the oldest and most useful sequence
manipulation programs, still used in many labs after years.  I'm sure most
of its functions seem trivial to most command-line Un*x folks but the
interface was clean and usable, and many Molbio folks raised on Macs (poor
souls ;)) would appreciate something to ease the lab transition to Un*x.
