bzzt.  how the heck do *you* know if any given class
in *my* program is used as a sequence?

or did you mean that *I* have to do that?

    "btw, now that you've installed 1.7, your old sequence
    classes no longer work.  you have to make sure they all
    inherit from AbstractSequence.  if you're using old C
    types, you're SOL"
