We should note that you will only see speedup in the solver, so that
problem has to be pretty large. I believe Mark has good results with it.
The assembly is still all on the CPU. I am working on this over break, and
hope to have a CEED version of it by the new year.

What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their
experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their
experiments lead.
