Laura - please ask these questions on the mailing list in the future  
so that others can benefit from the Q&A (and others can 'Answer').

It is indeed implemented in Bio::SimpleAlign - which is what you get  
back when you read in an alignment with Bio::AlignIO.
Bio::Align::AlignI is just an interface and not intended to be used
