More Accurate Band Setting

The first feature I would request is an easily accessible list of hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues. Although I don't have xiando's computer skills this list would take the form of a two column list perhaps maintaining the coloring scheme by highlighting the hydrophobics in orange and the hydrophilics in blue.
The second feature I would suggest is the ability to see an xyz axis for the protein. Personally I would prefer to have this with the origin on what ever residue you have selected with the center of the protein as 0º. I would be happy with one with the origin as the center of the protein if the first option is not available. With this I would like to be able to see the angle of a rubber band with it's residue. This could all take place in note mode.
These two features will prove useful with this third feature. I would like to be able to set bands using a command line (I think that is the correct term). This would be most often used to set bands between to residues. For instance in the manual rebuild tecnique one should set bands from every residue to every other. With this feature I could easily set all the rubber bands for a single residue with a single command, rather than dragging 20 rubber bands or so for each one. As some people attach bands to sidechains rather than residues, an S in front of the residue number could indicate the sidechain. I would also like an ability to set the strength of the rubber band,
I am bot sure how well this next part would work out. I would also like to set a band from a residue to space. This would require two direction, and a distance parameter. This may prove more difficult than manually setting the rubber bands, however.
Thank you for considering these requests, and I would also appreciate feedback from other players.
