[Chimera-users] drawing elipsolids

There is currently no Chimera command to draw a generic ellipsoid.
The natural command to do this would be "shape" which currently can draw
spheres, cylinders, icosahedrons, ... but not ellipsoids.
The "measure inertia" command draws an ellipsoid matching the moment of
inertia of specified atoms or surfaces.
Chimera can also draw thermal ellipsoids from anisotropic B-factors
given in PDB ANISOU records.
Some Python code can of course make ellipsoids.
Let me know if you'd like the shape command enhanced to include
ellipsoids and whether axes not aligned with x,y,z are needed.
