 I've been planning to start that "next week" for several months now.
It is probably impractical for you to attempt it. I can't make any
promises about when I'll do it, but the knowledge that someone is
waiting will certainly push it closer to the top of my priority stack.

 My Positioner.py module might be of some use here, and there's a chance I
accidentally did something that makes it only work for Group's, but it
ought to work with Molecules.
 I can sort of imagine the main body of my extensions (which are designed
around Group's) being kludged up to build crystals, but there would probably
be something ugly about the result.
