I have some old (i.e. not self-describing) LAMMPS ASCII dump files
that I would like to look at again in VMD.

Is it possible to simply add the necessary column definitions (i.e. id
type x y z vx vy vz ..) to the 9th line of the dump file (i.e. ITEM:
ATOMS) so that it can be read properly by the newest version of the
LAMMPS reader plugin?
