  At present there isn't a built-in "grid mode" feature to display
large numbers of small molecules side-by-side in a grid like PyMol does,
but one could certainly write a script to accomplish this. If you're just
looking at a couple of molecules you can just toggle one of them "fixed"
in the molecule browser of the main VMD menu, and then use the mouse translate
mode to move them out of alignment. To do the same via scripting, you
can just assign different translations to each of the molecules while
carefully toggling them fixed/unfixed in a loop over all molecules.
