Yes, as I posted earlier, your program does not point out
the possibility of star activity in incompatible (but
100% active) buffers and does not point out that there
can be problems when one of the enzymes must be incubated
at a temperature higher or lower than the typical 37degC.
Under either of these circumstances your program will
suggest a buffer or give activities that are wrong.
Unfortunately such circumstances are not at all uncommon
(eg. your program will not work for EcoRI combinations).
     A useful tool.  Add some warnings for the naiive user.
