NAMD chares

Hi All,

We're experimenting adding some features to NAMD, and I trying to figure out a few things.

Why does the main class inherit from Chare and not CBase_main as in other Charm++ programs?

I noticed that most of the NAMD chares do not inherit from CBase_***.

Would it cause problems if I changed

class main : public Chare


class main : public CBase_main


The reason I ask is that I want to add a few Python callable methods to some various NAMD chares.
Note, we did consider tcl and it does not meet our needs.
