Hi Pavel

Just to let you know, I ran phenix.refine with and without weight
optimization and I summarize the results below (R, clashscore, Ramachandran
and rotamer outliers)

without - 27.9/32.1, 21.9, 4.71, 11.08
with - 32.8/35.1, 8.6, 3.89, 6.44
without (torsion-angle NCS) - 27.9/31.0, 26.5, 4.1, 10.82

So, it seems weight optimization is trying to lower the clashes and
outliers at the expense of R factor.
