Perhaps xleap (part of AmberTools), but if your input has a bunch of incorrect
atoms, I don't know how well it deals with replacing them. I seem to remember
that it just writes new atoms and doesn't necessarily clean up the old ones, but
my memory could be incorrect or the program may have been improved since last I
