For list: and selction: the acdpretty output would look normal (the value: "" 
attribute can be filled in with the knowntype value).

For matrix: and matrixf: we can leave everything unchanged (add nothing to the 
ACD file in acdpretty), or we can offer a list of known matrix filenames using 
some new attribute name. This is a little tricky ... for the alignment 
programs, there will be separate lists for nucleotide (only EDNAFULL and 
EDNAMAT) and protein (EBLOSUM* and EPAM*) with the allowed values depending on 
the type of the input sequences. Of course, as matrix input the user can 
choose any other available matrix file if the interface allows.

Any prerefence (or any special requests to help JEMBOSS?)
