To be honest: I wasn't sure; I am porting pieces of old code, trying to
match it as much as possible, more or less with my head under my arm.

I see now that we use hsp.score in other similar places, so I think I
can use hsp.score and be done with it.

(It is a different value, though, right?)

Thanks for the hint, I'll have to look into why my colleague chose
