Dear Einstein Toolkit users,

some time ago I wrote a patch to allow external thorns to perform direct
calls to the low-level Periodic API, as I needed to apply periodic
conditions only on selected grid variables.

I proposed this patch to Erik, who suggested to implement some
improvements and to discuss it on the mailing list. After having
implemented his suggestions, somehow I forgot to post the patch also

The way in which it works is by simply moving the "logic" (handling of
errors and parameters) into Periodic_ApplyBC to make BndPeriodicVI
"thorn agnostic".
