Yeah, that's a nice use of the occupancy field. The problem is that I
can't even figure out which subtractions to do without some way to
access the residue mapping between the two nonidentical sequences that I
know is calculated during alignment. In my original email, I mentioned
that I'd discovered how to create that alignment object, I just can't
figure out how to iterate over the residue numbers it's connecting.
I might have to do something annoying like threading one of the
sequences onto the other structure so I can hack around this
