Is this really wise? Seems like some automated tool could refactor this at a compile-time stage rather than you obfuscating the names for developers.

I'm about to upload a massive refactoring. Mostly the desire is to bring down the size of the JavaScript version of Jmol and has nothing to do with Java. But classes have been renamed:

ScriptVariable --> SV
Token --> T

BitSet --> BS
BitSetUtil --> BSUtil
Colix --> C
Point3f --> P3
Point3fi --> P3i
StringXBuilder --> SB
Vector3f --> V3

JmolConstants --> JC

I apologize if this is an inconvenience, but it did knock off about 10% of the JavaScript footprint for JSmol.
