you can do this with the langevin thermostat. I don't recall exactly, but
I've done it before, the extra lines you need in whatever temperature loop
you are iterating over look something like this:
"set currentTemperature [whateveryouwant]"
In fact, I'm not sure that you actually want to use "reassignTemp" if you
want a really gradual change, I think you might just want to use something
like those lines above. I could have the specifics wrong, but it is doable
with minimum work.
