I think this might need some qualifications. If the constant
temperature dynamics are based inherently on NVE dynamics, they must
be affected similarly. For example, for Nose-Hoover thermostats,
there exists a conserved quantity. I would expect that this fix would
also improve that conserved quantity, wouldn't it?
One feature that would be useful is that for any algorithm that has a
"conserved energy-like" quantity, there should be an entry in the .edr
file with that quantity. It would be a useful check for algorithmic
consistency. I don't think this is yet in GROMACS, though I could be
wrong -- I haven't examined the CVS that recently.
