See the work of Gonnet, Benner, and co-workers.  (Do a search
in SeqAnalRef or the bionet archives -- I don't have the citations
handy).  The data structure they create is a sort of a transform
of what you describe -- a tree of all known (well, from SwissProt)
protein-subsequences.  That is, for any specified exact subsequence
you can look up every protein with that sequence.  Significant documentation
for their system (Darwin) is available via E-mail &/| FTP.  Again,
Gonnet has posted to the bionet groups, and so the bionet archives
are a good place to look for further leads.
