Just out of curiousity, is there some reason that doing it by hand
is a problem?  I have aligned AA sequences, and then gone back
to align the DNA the same way, while a pain in the butt, I don't
think I would be comfortable trusting a program.

I would appreciate any thoughts on why programs to do this are better.
