[texhax] package for importing chemical structure files

Dear tug,

Is there a package for directly importing chemical structure files  
from MarvinSketch, Chemdraw, ChemSketch or any other drawing program?

I found this (http://sourceforge.net/projects/chemdrawinlatex/files/),  
but I cannot find the files online.....

I know packages exist for drawing molecules (mostly organic ones) in  
tex, but I would like to use a standalone program (like MarvinSketch,  
Chemdraw, ChemSketch) to build molecules and then import them into a  
tex document.  Having to export my chemical structures as eps files  
and then importing them into tex is a huge hassle, especially when I  
have to modify the structures.

Unless something has changed since 2007 (http://www.tug.org/pipermail/texhax/2007-April/008302.html 
), I think I may be out of luck.
