Match_table tag.

MatchTable is an array class, which is defined in some whooks/ file and does in
fact work.  I think there is a matchtable.c or something like that somewhere.
Its use is deprecated, but I think that the St Louis human annotation pipeline
use it, at least they did once.  Ian Korf, now at Sanger, would probably know.
The aim was to efficiently store very large numbers of matches.  We now put these
into SMAPPed subobjects using the old tag structures, which are more flexible in
that they allow, for example, Align information.

Perhaps we should remove all this, but in that case we should remove the code
as well.
