Hmm... this is going to totally conflict with the send_list
modifications in my part of our in-progress sparse PetscVector patch...
not in any real sense, of course, but in the "patch command will fail
when it thinks some of your indentation changes conflict with some of my
code changes" sense.
In every sense that matters, though, this looks good.

back out of dof_map.C.

As long as we're in "adding features that have been on the TODO list for
years" mode, why not? ;-)
