I'm not sure what you mean by that. What moves? An evalue will always be 
an evalue. Once you know that you are in fact dealing with an evalue, 
and once your sorting algorithm knows that lower evalues are better, 
nothing changes. Likewise for other kinds of scores.

Instead of having to discover that a particular program is giving you an 
evalue, and then writing code to deal with an evalue appropriately, I 
thought it would be nicer to have a single module that knew how to deal 
with it already.
