[Chimera-users] custom residue label

How to programmatically set a residue label to an arbitrary text, e.g.  
to say something like:

rlabel :656.E "Lys-57"

What happens in some structures, like for instance 1U35 structure that  
contains H3 proteins, is that residue numbers in a PDB file is  
different from residue number of the sequence. In this particular  
example Lys57 of H3 on chain E maps to PDB residue number 656. So if I  
use default labeling I am getting wrong results...
