ADL: Problem with AutoDock Vina Modeling

Hi Tram,

I don't know much about Astatine, but if it is similar to iodine you could
maybe model the iodine analogues, perhaps with a larger vdW radii. Of
course this only makes sense if it doesn't do any strong interactions, as
in the vina scoring function it would be described by a vdW-like potential.
