What format options are there from blast? Just thinking if it supports 
CIGAR or something like that are we better providing a parser for that 
format & saying that we do not support the traditional blast output? 
That said it doesn't help is when that format changes so maybe what is 
needed is a way to push out parser changes without requiring a full 
biojava release (v3 discussion) ...
