Hi David,
Looks like I forgot to put it in the release notes, but with fairly recent daily builds of Chimera (version 1.6 rather than the production release 1.5.3), you can restrict the matchmaker alignment to specified sets of residues.

In the GUI, there are checkboxes to "Restrict matching to current selection"

For the command, you can give the residue ranges in the specification of the reference and match structures:

I hope this helps,

P.S. putting this on the chimera-users list
