The trick with getting stereo on the Mac version is to copy and rename the
"MacPyMOL" or "PyMOLX11Hybrid" executable to "StereoPyMOL". On the Mac,
there is currently no way of switching in or out of stereo. Either you
launch in full-screen stereo (without the extenal GUI), or you get mono.
Changing the name of the executable is the clue to the mac version of PyMOL
that it needs to launch in stereo mode.
Clumsy -- but it works.
