To-do:
2
* Samplevis:
3
  * Give 'Other sequences' bars a distinct look.
4
  * Add option to truncate long allele names.
5
6
  * Sort STR alleles by length by default.
  * Option to adjust the sorting.
7
  * Option to choose complete table download (all columns, not all rows).
8
  * When we have them, add default values to table filtering (for reference).
9
10
  * Some of the media query breakpoints overlap, fix this.
  * Perhaps it is desirable to be able to request a list of 'Other sequences'.
11
* Additions needed for publication:
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
  * [If not too difficult to implement] BGEstimate should start with homozygous
    samples and add heterozygous samples later to optimise correction.
  * Summary statistics for BGEstimate based on top N genotypes per marker,
    which is the highest percentage remaining background in reference database
    (maybe also additional value for confidence interval).
  * Visualisation to display highest remaining background (positive and
    negative) in known samples after BGCorrect analysis.
19
20
* Add a way to identify sequences that do not fit the library, or an option not
  to generate those.
21
* Add options to Libconvert to generate a template for STR or non-STR markers.
22
23
* Add options to Samplevis, Samplestats (and possibly other relevant tools) to
  filter alleles by sequence length.
24
25
26
* Add plotting of raw data points to StuttermodelVis.
* Add a print stylesheet for the other visualisations (only Samplevis has one).
* Add visualisation with all markers in one graph ("samplesummaryvis"?).
27
28
* Allow loading multiple files into HTML visualisations and provide prev/next
  buttons to browse them.
29
30
31
* Samplevis HTML visualisations in IE11:
  * Printing striped table rows does not seem to work, though this might be an
    NFI-specific issue.
32
  * Tables are not perfectly aligned with the graphs (graphs render slightly
33
34
    differently). Firefox is just 1px off (using em units for positioning now).
  * When printing, IE11 respects the pagebreak hints. Chrome and FF are bugged!
35
36
* [Known bug]: pattern_longest_match does not give the longest match if a
  shorter match is possible and found earlier at the same position.
37
* Add tool that takes a configuration file and runs a pipeline of other tools.

* Add "allow_N" flag to [no_repeat] markers.  If the flag is specified, the
  reference sequence may contain Ns.  People might need this for the rCRS mtDNA
  reference sequence.
* Adjust BGEstimate so that it computes forward and reverse in one go.  To do
  this, double the number of columns in P and C and put the forward profile in
  the left half and the reverse profile in the right half.  The benefit of this
  is that this ensures the same A is used for both strands, that is, the
  estimated allele balance is the same.
* Adjust BGEstimate so that it takes strand bias in the allele itself into
  account as well.
* Perhaps there should be a version of BGEstimate that makes a profile for each
  genotype instead of each allele.  This allows for the detection of hybrids.
50
51
* Add tool to summarise various statistics about the entire analysis pipeline:
  (TODO: Write this list)

*TODO: add option to change single output to multi-out (batch_process=True)
^does not use add_args functions (bgmodel/predict use sequence_format_args)

Input/output conventions:
* Write single output to sys.stdout by default, allow changing by -o
* Write report (if applicable) to sys.stderr by default, allow changing by -R
* For multi-in to single-out: list input files as positionals
* For single-in: provide [IN], [OUT] positionals (defaulting IN to sys.stdin)
* Single-in batch support via -i/-o; mutex with positionals!
  (if len(-o) == len(-i), map infile->outfile; if len(-o) == 1,
   map sample->outfile by rewriting tag)
* Multi-in to multi-out: allow multiple values in -o option (currently unused)

Reserved option letters:
-h  Help (used globally)
-v  Version (used globally)
-d  Debug (used globally)
-i  Batch input files
-o  Output files
-R  Report file
-F  Target sequence format
-l  Library
-e  Sample tag extraction pattern
-f  Sample tag format
