	It's my day guys!

	ClustalV is quite old now and the algorithm was improved by
ClustalW and now, the interface ClustalX. The limitation is made
at the compilation step. You can change it but it depends of how
many memory you have.

	Just picked ClustalX, which includes also ClustalW (the text
version) at (available for most platforms):


	The new version of Clustal include a DNA matrix with transistion/
transversion weights. The DNA alignemnt is the one for which we have
not enough feed-back to be sure that the algorithm is strong enough.
Please send me any correction or improvement you might need.
