as it says in the manual, at the moment, the decomposition scheme is
meant to (only) work in conjunction with mm_pbsa, i.e. for a
single-point energy evaluation of a single snapshot (I will prepare a
patch against non-intended usage). I admit that your idea might be
interesting, but it will be a longer-term goal.

Best regards
