JFTR: It needs to be updated and some circular dependencies (cdk depends
on Jmol's JmolAPIS.jar, JmolIO.jar and Jmol depends on cdk jars) need to
be solved. So probably Jmol needs to be split into 2 source packages or
changed by upstream, before we seriously think about a spnsor.

GNOME Crytsal can only handle the projects own MIME/file type
application/x-gcrystal so it is probably not applicable for the
questioned purpose.
