what sort of ORF finder would you be interested in? One that takes the
sequence as it is and outputs the most likely ORF (based on length and
coding potential)?

A couple of weeks ago I wrote to the BioPerl list about ESTScan. We will
need a parser for this very soon (the next days), and I was asking whether
someone could come up with an educated suggestion of how to model the
insertions and deletions ESTScan predicts (there was no response). I wanted
to make sure that we are not going to write a parser for the same thing.
