[phenixbb] Adding multiple conformers beyond 4

Hi Ben,

to allow so I will have to slightly change the code... I went through 
the whole PDB and did not find any item that has more than 3 or 4 
conformers (at the moment of coding this). So that made my choice for 
that temporary limitation of max=4 conformers (putting aside a number of 
cases of abusing altlocs to mimic multiple models MODEL-ENDMDL). 
Unfortunately, nothing is so permanent as temporary, so we have 4 since 
that -:)

May I ask you: why you need to have more than 4 conformers? If it is 
really a bottleneck and stops you from doing something important right 
now, I can go ahead and fix it.
