Would this method return an iterator over each sequence in the 
alignment? Sounds usefull to me. I have always taken an iterator over 
the labels and fetched each sequence from the alignment by each of these 

One issue - alignments are defined as being over symbol lists, not 
sequences. Does this break things?

You can find all classes implementing Alignment by greping the source 
tree for "implements Alignment" - I can only find 
org.biojava.bio.symbol.SimpleAlignment, but I may have missed something.

I think it would involve creating a new SequenceIterator implementation and updating everything that implements Alignment.  I would take care of that, if you guys could tell me every new class that implements Alignment since release 1.21.
