Certainly.  As I said previously, it's always a good idea
to keep data models and GUIs separate.  That said, it would
be great if we saw a good set of GUI beans for communicating
BioJava data -- so long as none of the core components end
up depending on these.

Probably worth reserving org.biojava.gui (and all subpackages)
for BioJava presentation beans.
