It would be good to be able to assume that :-) Unfortunately my
impression is that many people who post haven't done enough work
themselves on the problem... to the point that they haven't read the
manual (well enough). One could certainly interpret Michal's question in
the way you did, though!

Indeed, I carefully used the word 'topologies' - probably not perfect
given the specific GROMACS usage, but something like 'assemblies' or
'systems' aren't quite right either... 'structures'?

That you have to merge the topologies to be able to have the option of
restraints is a good point - one I hadn't encountered before. Thanks.
