       usually preceded with a _

        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();
        Function: Enumerates the possible distance methods
        Returns : Array of strings
        Args    : none
