This module implements a "flattened" data structure for Blast hits,
as opposed to the hierarchical structure in Bio.Alignment.BlastData.
The flat data type is useful in many cases where it is more natural
to see the result as a set of rows (e.g. for insertaion in a database).
It would probably be more (memory-) efficient to go the other way
(i.e. from flat to hierarchical), as passing the current, partially
built BlastFlat object down the stream of results and stamping
out a stream of completed ones. (See Bio.Alignment.BlastXML.breaks
for this week's most cumbersome use of parallelism to avoid the
