That could be good, but how robust would such a test be?  Energies could
vary quite a bit based on ion placement (which by default is random) and I
have even seen cases where genbox adds a slightly different number of
waters to identical solutes in identical boxes, so the topology may not
even be consistent.  This is fairly rare, but I do get people panicking
when doing my tutorials if they somehow get one fewer water molecule in
their box ;)
