Summary: Invert Chirality

Initial Comment:
We should have an extension which inverts the chirality of selected atoms or molecules.

The code is actually easy – pick two atoms bonded to a chiral carbon center, and translate each of them using the “skeletontree” code. This will swap positions of the two groups.
(Actually, thinking about it, you probably want to change the bond angle to -1.0*angle.)
