Using Colvars instead of the much older TMD implementation makes sense in
general, but I'm not 100% sure here.
Enabling Colvars in NAMD 3 on even a few atoms would probably damage
performance, because of the latency associated with the transmission of
data between GPU and CPU. On the positive side, it should be easy to test
if (1) it works and (2) performance is still acceptable on a short
FYI it looks like the OpenMM folks have struggled with a similar problem
and eventually implemented several collective variables directly as
internal objects, instead of using PLUMED as they had done previously.
