   A value that should be taken as a potential target value for the
   torsion angle associated with the specified atoms, expressed as
   the distance between the atoms specified by
   _chem_comp_tor.atom_id_1 and _chem_comp_tor.atom_id_4 in the
   referenced record in the CHEM_COMP_TOR list. Note that the
   torsion angle cannot be fully specified by a distance (for
   instance, a torsion angle of -60  degree will yield the same
   distance as a 60 degree angle). However, the distance
   specification can be useful for refinement in situations
   in which the angle is already close to the desired value.
