[Chimera-users] Define plane or planes matched to hither or yon clip planes

I often encounter cases where I am showing a slab of density or model (or
both), clipped using the global clip planes, and would like to show the
viewer a thumbnail illustrating the position of these clip planes from an
orientation orthogonal to the viewing direction (similar to what is shown
in side view), to give context.

Is there any way to define either two planes, one matched to the current
yon and one matched to the global hither, or one thick plane with the
thickness defined such that one side matches hither and the other yon?

Alternatively I guess I can do this using the model-specific clip planes,
but that's a little cumbersome to do when many models/maps are involved.
