MMTK tries to read any reasonably PDB file, but always writes files that=20
conform to the official PDB specification.

You can easily add a name convertor for hydrogens. Look at=20
Scientific/IO/PDBExportFilters.py, the XPlor filter should be easy to=20
understand. If all you need for CNS is a translation of hydrogen names, y=
should be able to get it done just by adding more entries to the xplor=20
translation table.
