Comment (by eschnett):

 I do not think that CarpetInterp2 is faster per se. It may be faster (does
 anybody have numbers?) since it pre-calculates the stencil coefficients
 and the communication schedule. That is, if we offered a Cactus
 interpolator compatible implementation, then (by default) there would not
 be any speedup. The largest complication is to restructure to code to
 allow precalculation; this usually requires scheduling another routine,
 duplicating a loop, using a static variable, etc. This would still be
 required even if the Cactus interpolator interface was used.
