Exactly. Thus another option - do nothing .

bond, not move it.
So I vote for option #1. Moving the bond should, if anything, move the atoms
attached to it.
In case of a fused rings structure this might lead to movement of the entire molecule.
What happens to other atoms attached to those (i.e. in molecules larger than
ethane)? They should stay I think, though then you have some very long
