An alignment containing multiple ISymbolLists.

The alignment can be thought of as a rectangular array of ISymbols. Each row is indexed by a label and each column is indexed by offset (counting from 1).

Alternatively, it can be thought of as a ISymbolList where each ISymbol is a list of ISymbols in that column.

To create gapped alignments, use ISymbolLists with gaps. The most flexible way to do this will be to leverage IGappedSymbolList objects.
