[Bioperl-l] why does Bio::Tools::Run::Hmmer return a SearchIO
object for hmmalign?

I'm curious as to why Bio::Tools::Run::Hmmer returns a
SearchIO object when the program is hmmalign. I would
have expected an AlignIO object since the result of an
hmmalign execution is a Stockholm formatted alignment file.
I expect that I'm missing something obvious, but I don't
see it. An online search, including the mailing list
archive, didn't help.
