The two implementations use different algorithms, and the bookkeeping in the
score matrix is done differently.  For an illustration of the algorithm used in
Biopython, see:

The score matrices are different and not comparable.  However, the final
alignment, score, and traceback should be the same.  Please let me know if they
are not.

I chose this algorithm because it was simpler for me to generate a correct
