Yes, I was already expecting this kind of problems. You are right about
which keywords to use.
But, in a more general way, the scripts that are written by people (not
including plugins) have "always" a common set of commands :
{animate,atomselect,axes,color,colorinfo,display,draw,%
exit,graphics,gettimestep,help,imd,label,light,material,measure,%
scale,stage,tool,translate,user,vmdinfo,volmap,wait,sleep%
},%

Thanks for the warning.
