I am working on a plugin so I do want to be able to do this 
programatically.  Thanks for the hint on the auto-association.  The 
problem I have now is matching too well.  Both sequences are matching 
the second model loaded.  I see I can fix this in the interface, but any 
clue on how to access this for scripting?

Thanks again,
