You don't want to compute PMF from the forces in the trr file.
You need a lot of sampling for a PMF and the trr would become far
Currently we have the pull code and free energy code, both with
umbrella sampling and constraints for determining PMF's.
I prefer to have F=-grad V in the trr file and not the constraint forces.
