[Users] WENO-Z in GRHydro

 thank you very much for the information.

My student (Beatrice Giudici, in cc to this email) told me that this is the
same WENO-Z that is used by Bernuzzi in his BAM code (
https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2016PhRvD..94f4062B/abstract). She is
going to do some tests, starting with the Balsara tests and compare it with
MP5 and WENO. We will then probably move to oscillating TOV and then BNS
(maybe doing some of the tests that Roberto did in his paper with WENO).

We will keep you posted. I just wanted to check what the status was. I
added Roberto in this discussion because of his work with WENO and GRHydro,
so I was wondering if he had a look also at WENO-Z.
