I think ActionManager.mouseAction() could do what I want.  Is there a way to call it from a script?

How do I select a particular molecule based on x and y position in the view window?  Perhaps by simulating a mouse click?  I've seen 'select within(distance, {x y z})' but that refers to internal 3D coordinates, not coordinates in the 2D view window.
