Unfortunately, this is not a simple task.  There are actually several 
layers of heuristics beyond the referenced procedures, mainly to handle 
small segments and chain identifiers, so the results may not be as clean 
as one would expect.  Also, we would then have to come up with some sort 
of naming/attribute scheme so that different parts can be referenced. 
This may fall more in the ChimeraX realm at this point.  Sorry.
