[Chimera-users] command line zone selection?

I'm putting together a demo for my students this next semester, and was hoping 
to be able to do a zone selection about the ligand. Is this possible with the 
command line?  I haven't been able to pull out a reference for such, yet.

Certainly I could pull together the list of residues myself, but thought it'd 
be nice to have the command available.  Some students might like to create a 
demo file for their reports, and this would become a pivotal tool for a 
subset of those.

If not directly available, then a wishlist addition, perhaps?  Something like:

zonesel [within|beyond] [+/- angstroms] [atom-spec]

where the sign of the angstrom value denotes whether to include (+) or exclude 
(-) the atoms in atom-spec.
