Sujin working on VTK/VTK-m data set interface. Some features in coming virtual array handle might make this easier.

Matt has been having "fun" with the IBM XLC compiler. It has been problematic because the XLC compiler is very slow (orders of magnitude slower than GCC) and occasionally is missing a feature.
