Yes Heikki's module is an excellent starting point but to calculate these
indices we also need to know how many synomns a codon  (i.e. 6 4 3 2 or 1 )
has under each genetic code, also the number of synonyms used for each AA is
useful. Even something a trivial as GC3s (GC content at synonymous third
positions) is code dependent so the standard indexes need to tweaked if they
are going to be applied under alternative genetic codes. I already have the
necessary code in C if it is decided to include codon bias indices.
