There are many ways to skin a cat. Users might also want to look at
the "-wrap" option to ambpdb, which does about the same thing as this
perl script. This should generally be turned on if you need to communicate
to other programs, like RasMol or Insight.

In the next release, I think we will make the default output more like
"real" pdb and less like amber-pdb. I hope this will ease communication
with other programs.
