Thanks for the nice discussion.
Xavier, when you say that the reference structure should have the bilayer in
the center of the box, and everything inside the box, are you referring to
all three dimensions? My reference structure does have the bilayer at the
box center, but some lipid tails will always point out of the box in the xy
plane, would they not?
