[Chimera-users] [feature request] would it be possible to drive/launch PLIP from within chimera?

Recently, I stumbled upon this open source tool:
PLIP - Protein-Ligand Interaction Profiler
Analyze and visualize non-covalent protein-ligand interactions in PDB
From the abstract:
detection and visualization of [...] seven interaction types (hydrogen
bonds, hydrophobic contacts, pi-stacking, pi-cation interactions, salt
bridges, water bridges and halogen bonds).
And, when I am inside chimera looking at a protein-ligand complex,
it would be super nice if this tool could be launched from within
chimera (as in a menu "Tools -> Surface/Binding Analysis -> PLIP
analysis (visualize non-covalent interactions)").
Or, maybe it could be a toggable button inside of ViewDock.
