[BioRuby] RestrictionEnzyme?

Hi Trevor,

I wrote GenEST, not part of BioRuby, as yet, which takes a bunch of
cutters from a configuration file and lists the cut fragments in a
colourful way. See


The one thing that is lacking is the interpretation of degenerated EST
data - i.e. predicted cuts on fragments. But that is mostly an EST problem.

Have a look at that code and feel free to use it for BioRuby. It has
two things going for it: (1) there is some complexity with multiple
enzymes being used and (2) this code has been production tested by a
number of groups.
