For the sake of clarity in the archive, it's probably best to avoid broad
generalizations. People can easily stumble upon a post and take it way out of
context. A "general situation" might encompass a lot. I will reiterate that if
you want to recapitulate the behavior of pdb2gmx with respect to typical
biomolecules, you should choose all non-H atoms.
If you have some other specialized application, I can make no recommendation,
nor can anyone else, in the absence of a more thorough description.
