Hi Jeff,
Yes, there is a "molmap" command in recent versions:

In addition, the "Fit in Map" tool can use the same functionality to  
simulate a map from atomic coordinates and then use map-in-map fitting:

These features were added after the November production release but  
are available in recent daily builds:
