Though I see some sense in having the proposed hack, it should be used with
care since in most cases the additional groups will be ions or small subsets
of atoms, which are better not to be coupled to a heat bath independently. I
would advocate not to rely on such an option, but rather check the pdb for
non-standard groups or use the protein/non-protein groups.
