PS - stripping from rst means you'd have to generate the no-wat
prmtop for ambpdb to work with the modified rst. Making the change
to ambpdb is more sensible I think. While at it, a -nosolvent flag
could strip whatever prmtop thinks is solvent (there is a pointer
to the solvent section as I remember), which might provide
the convenience of leaving in xtal waters.
