Hi Matt,

We always love to see people involved, and don't hesitate to point out  
stupid/strange things.

The only reasons we don't fix things like immediately (TM) is that the  
Gromacs codebase is beginning to get quite big, so we're always a bit  
hesitant to start changing pieces of the code that don't have any  
significant problems.

Development-wise, we're currently roughly halfway to 4.1 (from 4.0),  
which will contain a number of nice features to improve scaling,  
usability, and free energy calculations. After 4.1 we'll be doing  
major changes to the code again (and tentatively allow C++, but that  
will require some more testing...), and at that time we're also  
planning to clean up lots of things like this.

However, as David mentioned, we always look at patches :-)

Merry Christmas,
