Dendy's MG needs geometry.  The algorithm to produce the interpolation
operators is not terribly complicated so it could be done, though DMDA
support for cell-centered is a somewhat awkward.  "Deflated CG" can mean
lots of things so you'll have to be more precise.  (Most everything in
the "deflation" world has a clear analogue in the MG world, but the
deflation community doesn't have a precise language to talk about their
methods so you always have to read the paper carefully to find out if
it's completely standard or if there is something new.)
