I don't understand the question...although LEaP sometimes prints out warnings
if there sp2 atoms without torsions, fundamentally it doesn't care about this.
It just uses the atom types to match up torsions with parameters.

See above. If this is not what you are asking, you will need to ask a more
detailed question: what particular problem are you trying to solve?
