Thanks Lifeng - I thought we had this information somewhere.

So - what I think the long term (1.0) solution for this should be is to go

   ->alphabet()  # returns one of 'dna' 'rna' 'protein' 
   ->moltype()/molecule # returns one of 'mrna' etc

question is which interfaces (PrimarySeqI, SeqI or RichSeqI) should
moltype go on (I presume alphabet should go on PrimarySeqI)

what do you think of this Heikki?
