Note also that PyMOL beta versions now match Jmol's colors
element-for-element except for those few atomic colors previously defined in
PyMOL (just C,N,O,H,S -- I think)
Changing those colors is simply a matter of changing the associated color
set_color helium, [ 0.4, 0.3, 0.7]
Carbons are the only exception, siince objects in PyMOL are given one of 40
default carbon colors in a repeating cycle so that separate molecules can be
visually distinguished. To turn this off:
set auto_color, off
To get a Jmol-like carbon:
set_color carbon, [0.564, 0.564, 0.564]
