If rebuilds are not random, and in fact are pulled from a datatbase, then we need to derive an equation, perhaps like one I mentioned earlier, that can normalize or even avergae (the score) of rebuilds having similar shapes, as a way to optimize out wiggle backbone and global wiggle. This will make work on puzzles even faster.

Interesting idea, but you might want to know that the two tools are different from a technical standpoint:

* Global wiggling are gradient-based optimization;
* While rebuilds are fragment insertions from known structures.

Hence, applying the strategy used for rebuilds for wiggling might actually be even LESS effective.

ah, so there really is no benefit to merging them, because there is no way for the fragment insertion to undergo a hidden markov-based analysis based on the codons.

Sounds like the question was answered.

Closing feedback.
