I don't know about the script or the wizard (yet), but I did try the
sculpting demo in the Demo menu. You can then just drag atoms
by left-clicking them while holding down the control key. The
dragged atom moves, everything it is connected to is dragged along,
and the structure tries to minimize its energy. Great fun!
