 Title   : distance
 Usage   : my $distance_mat = $stats->distance(-align  => $aln, 
                                               -method => $method);
 Function: Calculates a distance matrix for all pairwise distances of
           sequences in an alignment.
 Returns : Array ref
 Args    : -align  => Bio::Align::AlignI object
           -method => String specifying specific distance method 
                      (implementing class may assume a default)


 Title   : available_distance_methods
 Usage   : my @methods = $stats->available_distance_methods();
