ok. It does look neat but the reason why I am staying with GDE
at the moment is

a) Seaview grabs my keyboard sometimes from the Xserver and wont
let go (anyone else with this problem?) I am running on a alpha
with twm.

b) I could not persuade seaview to chop the ends of an alignment
(the natural way is... highlight it and 'cut' or something similar).
Is there some way to do this. This is the second most common use
of a multiple alignment editor for me (the first being the actual

but... kudos for making the editor. Is there some more formalismed
bug page/request page for the code?

I would still be really interested in an emacs 'multiple alignment'
editor. I think this would be ideal. Anybody out here doing it...
