this is a quick announcement that we added the "metals" keyword to the
selection language (SVN code revision 4039).

Since PyMOL's selection language is one of the powerful core features
that make so many complex tasks so easy, we plan to add more useful
keywords and operators. For example selecting by x,y,z coordinates, or
selecting by secondary structure element. If you have a good idea for a
new keyword or operator, please file a feature request on sourceforge.
