Correction: it is possible to make H-bond detection ignore other  
models - the GUIs and commands have options to do that.

AddH is always affected by all other models, however.  Findclash is  
always affected by all other models unless you designate only atoms  
within the same model and indicate they should only be checked for  
clashes among themselves.
