alignment.clear() -- delete all sequences from the alignment

This deletes all of the sequences from the alignment. It is not exactly the same as deleting the alignment object and creating a new one, since any structural data already read in remains in the alignment object. This is useful if the sequences are reread and the structural information needs to be reused.
