One important caveat, of course, is a given thermostat's ability to produce
velocities that belong to a real NVT ensemble. This is not the case, for
instance, with the Berendsen algorithm. It maintains the temperature, but the
distribution is not canonical. If the goal is simply to heat up a given species
and then proceed with further simulations, the method chosen during heating is
probably rather insignificant.
