The StructureDiagramGenerator gradually builds coordinates by first=20
laying out ring systems and then doing chain by chain with decreasing=20
There are a couple of methods to do those single tasks and it should be=20
possible already to perform a lot of the layouts for fragments added to=20
an existing system.
A writeup on how to do these things would be nice of course and I guess=20
that would be my task.
We should start with a couple of explicit problems (start with=20
constitution X with coordinates and added fragment Y and Z, then do the=20
layout). Then we could see how to automate this stuff.
