Summary: “Better view” algorithm is needed

Initial Comment:
In Chemcraft (www.chemcraftprog.com, there is free trial version available, runs fine under Wine 1.0.0-1.1.17) there is “Better View” (or "Best view in older versions) option which automagically re-orients molecule in space to make most number of atoms visible, and aligns molecule. Sometimes it helps to find orientation which is difficult to achive using manual rotation
