You guessed it with the last question.  To clarify, what I need to do is to
determine whether there is a "best" hit against the genome.  I am interested
in hits with just a couple of mismatches or fewer, but over the entire
length of the query sequence.  Therefore, I need to know when I have a query
hitting to a piece of genomic sequence where the only discontinuity is due
to a splice site.
