Hi Steve,

  I'll ask the other Chimera developers about making independent mode
rotation use the center of the whole model when it is undisplayed.
Unfortunately that is a change in the C++ that would not be available
for a while.

  I'll try making a rotation/translation undo button next week.  I think
it can be done all in Python and I could just email you the code.
