  Now that I gave it a second though I could just append a small
trajectory to itself multiple times with catdcd. However none of the
trajectories I possess contains carbonhydrates or lipids. It would be
interesting to see how my code can handle such cases.

My plugin can keep only the macromolecule and a given number of closed
waters and other heterocompounds, and removes the rest from every
frame. In other words truncates the trajectory. Do you see now why I
need a big trajectory?
