[Biopython-dev] PCR module

I have looked at your sequtils module and I can add some code from my own
PCR module:

Melting temperature of primers.
Matching primers to a template, including primers with overhangs.
Checking the frame of the product vs the template (only for primers which
contain a gateway adapter, otherwise I cannot know the frame of the primer).

I plan to add some primer selection code but I first have to analyze 1600
PCR reactions we did and improve the primer selection based on that.

Would you like to see the code and add it to your module or would you prefer
that I write a module that uses sequtils and adds new methods?
