…and that is now done; the metis interface should build the CSR graph representation in-place now.  That should produce a line marginally lower than the current green 'best' implementation at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9BK7pg8se_iQXpnT0x6aEY5aTg/edit?usp=sharing

Nicely done yet again!  The new implementation ran faster, and cut .23 Gb of memory.  That is a pretty huge memory savings for a 2 Gb mesh, especially considering the graph is only actually formed on one processor now.
