Detailed Explanation

The results of this function might be a little confusing at first, but the reason for this is that the results mimic the PyMOL function cmd.get_vis(). It might not be the easiest to understand, but it is implemented like this for a reason.

The return values of getRepsInSceneForObject() are all of the possible representations for a particular object that are possibly shown in a scene.

The implementation of this function wanted keep the consistency between PyMOL's cmd.get_vis() and JyMol's getRepsInSceneForObject().

getRepsInSceneForObject() returns the same information in the 2rd element of the list for a particular object returned by cmd.get_vis() in PyMOL. (cmd.get_vis() returns a Python dictionary, with a list of information in the dictionary for each object. )
