Comment (by hinder):

 That would address interface.ccl. What about schedule.ccl?  I would like
 an application thorn to only have to declare the number of timelevels that
 it actually needs.  So a wave equation thorn, writing to only one
 timelevel, would just say
   STORAGE: phi[1]
 I think the 1 is actually optional in this case.  Then we need a way for
 MoL to dynamically tell the driver that it needs two timelevels for phi,
 and Carpet to indicate that it needs 3 if the time prolongation order
 requires it.  What would be a good way of implementing this?  It is not
 quite the same as SetMaxTimelevels.
