Being that it's an acronym, I've always tried to make it GROMACS on the
website and in the manual, wherever I find it occurring; I always thought
that was the correct way. Some inconsistencies remain, but such is life
with wikis. I get lazy in my emails and type "Gromacs," but that's just
because I want to avoid shift ju jitsu and/or caps lock.
