What you are saying is: it is better that someone else does the shitty 
work for me...

We simply don't have time to do all that stuff. If something, this would 
need to be automated, in the way that PRODRG does it. However the PRODRG 
have limited manpower as well and asking them to support any kind of 
molecules with any kind of force field is not likely to be met with 
great enthausiasm.
