Wow, I didn't even know the Bio.SubsMat module existed. 
As we have several different but related modules (Bio.Motif, Bio.SubstMat, Bio.Align), I think we should define the purpose and scope of each of these modules.
Maybe a good way to start is the documentation. Bio.SubsMat is currently divided into two chapters (14.4 and 16.2). I'll have a look at this over the weekend to see if this can be cleaned up a bit.
