Hi Boaz,
Happy New Year to you too!

Although I'm sure people would like to have an APBS-Chimera interface, I imagine it is not trivial to develop considering the large number of parameters.  As far as our team, the ratio of potential things to do (no pun intended) vs. people to do them is very high.  As far as the rest of the world, I lack the information to answer!

Should we  ask them to develop one? I'm sure we can collect enough votes to promote  that. For example, I find the Consurf and Castp plugins (maybe  interfaces, whatever they should be called) very nice and useful, so why not APBS too?
