What this is is a list of the shapes that are currently being displayed
along with their "shapeVisibilityFlag"
The shapeVisibilityFlag is set for a Rasmol group ("monomer") when
that group is being displayed in some Rasmol form, such as cartoon,
This flag set is included now in getProperty("polymerInfo")
The shapeVisibilityFlag is also set for atoms when stars or dots or such
This flag set is included now in getProperty("atomInfo")
[but currently the Balls shape flag is not indicating there -- I'll fix
We can now add to the list of what one would like to know about how an
atom is displayed by adding flags such as this.
This flag system should speed rendering (to some meager extent) because
now Jmol does not have to check all the conditions for visibility for
every simple operation, like mouse dragging. Instead, only after scripts
or frame changes.
