[Chimera-users] Zones to create inspector list of "contacts"

I am trying to achieve something with this effect:

Generate a list of all the atoms in other molecules of a 
multi-protein complex that are within a specific "contact" distance 
of atoms a molecule of interest in the complex, with them presented 
in the same way that H-honds or distances are illustrated.

You can use Select:Zones to get the atoms that lie within a set 
distance of a molecule. All that seems to be needed is for the 
Select:Zones operation to optionally generate a list of atom pairs 
that the inspection things present.

So far I can't seem a simple way of doing this without hacking code 
or doing it manually. Is there a way of doing this currently, or 
should this be looked at as future possible feature?

Obviously, there are other useful "neighbour" operations you can do 
also, e.g. neighbours within the current selected molecule, 
neighbours by atom/residue type.
