Why are you raising money to build a OpenMM GROMACS GPU app when there already exists one for both Nvidia and ATI?!

The default binary lacks to several capabilities such as 1 and 2.

1) it does not allow you to use the command line option --device m which is required by any GPU project so the boinc client can manage which graphics card to use.
2) it lacks the progress monitoring capability we need to report the progress of our simulations so users feel confident the analysis is working properly
