Name to structure conversion

Using the API to convert a name to a structure:

String input = "2,3-dimethylbenzoic acid";
Molecule m = MolImporter.importMol(input, "name");

The exact behavior of name to structure can be configured by including name format options after the "name" parameter, for instance "name:ocr".

It is possible to register your own plugins to extend name to structure, for instance to lookup compound IDs in a database. This is documented in the NameConverters class.
