This is a cell-local exponential filter in DG so it shouldn't change the
sparsity.
By "tank" I mean I've seen it take 2x more krylov iterations or worse when
i apply the same filter directly to the RHS evaluation... although saying
that now I'm having trouble recreating it and it's converging fine with a
filtered right hand side.
I've done some experiments with applying the same filter (a) to the right
hand side directly, (b) to the newton search direction at each SNES step,
and (c) to the time step update. (c) seems to be preferable, (b) has never
worked for me, (a) works for explicit at least, but is of course more
dissipative.
There’s no need to call TSSetSolution inside the PostEvaluate routine. Just

Perfect, thanks!
