So the GenBank file says in its header "ss-RNA" (single stranded RNA), and we
obey this and set an RNA alphabet.  However, as you point out, the actual
sequence contains T not U, so is in fact given as DNA!

Is this a bug in GenBank maybe...?

Do you think we should switch the T's into U's to match the stated alphabet, or
simply return a DNA sequence based on the content?
