this assumes two domains, right?  IIRC, every discussion of twinning i 
have read treats the problem in terms of two domains.  what is the basis 
for only having two domains (besides simplicity)?

someone mentioned a three-domain twinning problem (maybe ccp4 or phenix 
bb, last week or so) - wouldn't that need "1-alpha-(third domain
