Thats something I'd like to do, but havent gotten a grip on the physics of
it yet. A binary star system isnt a problem to model... but through in a
third star and all bets are off :-)

I _was_ working on AU being an option in the system data fields setup as
part of the next minor update, but for some reason ended up not adding
in. The specific reason escapes me right now. But it is on my to-do list
as quite a few people have asked for that.
