[MMTK] Protein mutation: atomic coordinates of substituting residue

I’d like to replace a cysteine residue in the peptide chain by the non-standard residue (which is S-nitrosated cysteine). There is a special function in MMTK for this purpose, named ReplaceResidue(). However it modifies only logical structure of protein thus leaving positions of ‘new’ atoms undefined.
In mailing list archive, I found a message (http://starship.python.net/pipermail/mmtk/2005/000920.html) where this problem was overcome. However that scripts seems to be not working on the most recent versions of MMTK (I got 2.7.3). In any case, it was a manual way of solution.
Is there some way to automatically place atoms of substituting/mutating residue (whose geometry is defined in Database by a Z-Matrix) in correct positions in a protein?
