To ensure that none is missed one can create one's own list. Assume a
length-span of 50 - 1000 amino acids (you will miss some, but not
significantly many, you can correct that in another life).

Then make a script inserting each of the 20 amino acids into every
position in every combination and ask _your_ computer to assemble 
the list. Go for coffee...
