cloning software

Does anyone know of any software that will figure out a cloning scheme 
automatically if you give it an insert sequence and designate a vector (or
multiple cloning region)?? What I have in mind is to be able to give the
program a sequence, range of interest , choice or orientation and other
"constraints" and then let the computer figure out the best cloning scheme
for selecting compatible enzymes and vectors.  Obviously for many cloning
schemes this is simple but for others it is not but since there is a finite
set of possibilities is should be easy to do by computer. 
So is there a program that does this or something similar?  If not is there
any interest? we are thinking of developing something along these lines.

Thanks
