With Egon's help, I tried out Jmol v9's handling of cif and drawing
multiple cells. Jmol v9 had an comprehensive menu devoted to unit cells
and lattices that allowed the user to determine the range of unit cells
in each of three directions separately for each of unit cell boundaries,
atoms, and bonds. It would be nice if it could be reduced to simple
script commands, at least for the simplest cases: say 'lattice 2 4 5',
for which a 2x4x5 lattice is calculated.
