I guess the real question is, " what are you trying to do?" You could
probably write a perl script to do this. The pdb is ascii, you just need to project
3D onto 2D and get some atom colors and radii. SVG AFAIK is all ascii
XML which is easy to generate from a script.
If you take all the atoms, project, sort on Z ( distance from viewer),
and generat XML that would probably give you what you need.
the code to draw circles is pretty simple,
