It is not very high priority for the developers, but it wouldn't be very
hard either. Erik L. has implemented a version of the inner loops that
does not compute forces, and hence would be even faster for MC. What is
needed is that someone writes an integration algorithm. If someone is
interested to do it please let us know...
