Well that's of course correct if this can be achieved.
I have a different suggestion, though.
I guess it is time for a book totally devoted in the
graphical presentation of (biological) molecules.
Of course there will be considerable contents about
computer graphics in such a book, but it is still possible
to compile such a book so that the topics most important for
people who wish to use some packages to prepare molecular graphics
are appropriately emphasized and clearly explained.
The problem of an FAQ is always that new comers often do not even
know how to describe their problems adequately.
Just like hunting for integral formular in a math table,
we rookies just do not know what our problems are like in those
very valuable references.
An introductory book will be very very good for us.
Since Warren has started his work in an environment which I think
is the best (Python I mean, due to the flexibility of it.),
I think it a great idea if someone can write such a book with
PyMol as the example package.
That will be an ideal book for me if there is one.
