I do agree with the license and I'd be happy to support it.

The other thing is that I'll probably be working with other motif Finding tools
as well, and here arises the need of the general class for sequence motifs.
There exists a TFBS module for bioperl (http://forkhead.cgb.ki.se/TFBS/), and it
serves well for my inspiration , but I think that a sequence motif is something
more general than just Transcription Factor Binding Sites. It would be really
great if someone would help me with other possible uses for the sequence motifs. 

looking forward to any comments
