Adjusting width of cartoon

β-strands:

set cartoon_rect_length
set cartoon_rect_width



α-helices:

set cartoon_oval_length
set cartoon_oval_width

Loops:

set cartoon_loop_radius


"Fancy" α-helices:

set cartoon_dumbell_length
set cartoon_dumbell_width
set cartoon_dumbell_radius #(radius of cylinder at edge of helix ribbon)

In each case "length" refers to what some might call the width and "width" refers to what some might call the thickness.
