[Chimera-users] soliciting chain-trace opinions

Hi all,
	Right now, if you do the "chain trace" action (or type "chain @ca")  
Chimera shows carbon alphas and any inter-residue connectivity of  
those residues, including disulfide linkages.  I'd like to know if  
users generally like this behavior or would instead prefer a "strict"  
backbone-only trace, so I can determine whether to change the  
behavior, offer both alternatives, or leave things alone.
	This is only really relevant to the "trace" depiction since although  
the "full" and "minimal" backbone depictions also show disulfides,  
that can be turned off by turning off auto-chaining via the Model  
Panel, Selection Inspector, or "setattr" command*.
	   So what do people think?

* in the setattr command you would be setting "autochain" to false.
