Look at the programs CURVES or X3DNA, they may be of assistance; however I
don't think they have a "occupancy" definition, or that they handle RNA (in
addition to DNA).
Why not take a similar approach to that in DNA and for a give secondary
structure of RNA define optimal base stacking (as indicated via a local
energy minimum of a PMF where the reaction coordinate is the twisting of the
base out of the "stack") as occupancy 1 and completely orthogonal bases as
occupancy 0, with a range in between labeled for 0.1, 0.2, etc.
