Bound and "not hydrated" are completely different things. A ligand can be
partially exposed or may even be hydrated in a pocket. The difference
should be between ligand-environment1 interaction (solvent only) and
ligand-environment2 interaction (protein/solvent). So energygrps = Ligand
notLigand (or protein_solvent_ions) does make sense.
