Uhmm, probably not quite. The code should use the cctk_bbox(6) array
which has entries 0 or 1 depending on whether a face is an outer (or
symmetry) boundary or not. 

The indexing is i = 1 + 2*idir + iface where idir = 0,1,2 and iface =
0,1 (lower, upper face).

The loops are kind of inefficient as you should have the "k" loop as
the outer one (as usual). Using cctk_nghostzones(3) as the boundary
width is not quite correct as technically you should use the boundary
width returned by thorn CoordBase's GetBoundarySpecification aliased
function (see its interface.ccl).
