I think it would be more productive to post this to gmx-developers rather than
gmx-users, since it really is an inquiry about the code itself. The core
developers usually don't reply to gmx-users, and they're the ones who will have
the answers. My inclination is that the answer to your question (now that it's
more clear what you're asking) is "no," but since I have no direct knowledge of
the PME code, I can't say for certain.
