Hm.. usually we don't need the velocities (are you sure you do?) for
analysis, so I don't think it's implemented for the .trr files, but for
.xtc trajectories you can just create a group and select that for output in
the .mdp file.

It's close to trivial to implement the same functionality in the .trr
files, but the danger is that these partial files aren't enough to continue
a run since they do not contain all velocities!
