I have added the concept of Synonyms, found in BioSQL, to the BioJava ontology term objects. I have also made the BioSQL interface part of BioJava aware of these synonyms and capable of retrieving/persisting them from the database.

This has resulted in the addition of three new methods ( getSynonyms(), addSynonym(synonym), removeSynonym(synonym) ) to the Term interface, with associated additions in those interfaces which extend it. Likewise, one extra method ( createTerm(name,description,synonyms) ) has been added to the Ontology interface.

Please let me know if there are any problems.
