Let's tackle that first idea first.

I want all those pages where that structure is displayed, the
algorithm would be like this:

- define a container holding a data structure with 1. protein
  structure names 2. list of strings (later holding the topic
    page names). The container key is 1.
- for all topic page names
-- load the page
--- for any scene or STRUCTURE statement, append the page name
    to the appropriate data structure in the container
- for all data structures in the container having names appended
-- load the structure page
--- complete the entries there (should be agreed upom the format

I just see that PDBsum links to Proteopedia structures but those who
follow that link will not benefit from the work done on the topic pages.

Jaime and me are already in discussion about details. I would have to
think about how I would test it here, but see no big problems.
