[phenixbb] Imposing bond restraints across the asymmetric unit

Hi Brandon,

There is a small hint here:

For bonds to symmetry copies, specify the symmetry operation in xyz
> notation, for example:
> symmetry_operation = -x-1/2,y-1/2,-z+1/2

The whole .eff file might look like:
 refinement.geometry_restraints.edits {
    bond {
      action = *add delete change
      atom_selection_1 = chain A and resid 1199 and name O4
      atom_selection_2 = chain A and resid 1196 and name C1
      symmetry_operation = X-1/2,-Y+1/2,-Z
      distance_ideal = 1.439
      sigma = 0.020

Best regards,
Oleg Sobolev.
