I am not sure if with the Illinois group's speedup of the "evaluate"
facility in TwoPunctures (and the analogous change in the CIGR branch)
evaluating the spectral solution is not necessarily the slowest part
anymore. For BBH solving is likely still fast true but for very high
spectral resolution (such as we used in the CIGR project) and/or source
terms this is no longer quite true.

The "evaluate" facility should by now be quite fast.
