CCing debian-science now, and debichem-devel (debichem people: please CC me) --
also CCing upstream.
I also requested membership to debian-science -- I was member once, but
preferred to work on debian-med at the time ;)

It's a "2-D chemical drawing tool" for sure, thank you -- I'll fix the short

It's a small software requiring few dependencies (but I see that there are
others already), but what is (or would be ) a killer-feature is its ability
to have plugins.
Also, one can create own "rings", meaning particular molecule structures, with
"simple"  text files.
 I never tried, but there is support.
 upstream: this should probably be better documented! ;)
