Hi Baylor, this is very exciting stuff!  A few questions for posterity's

1) Will modified C2Leith and brand-new Smagorinsky work with spherical
polar grid and with cubed-sphere grid?

2) If so, which of the six (harmonic and biharmonic) schemes would you 
recommend and under what circumstances?

3) Have you or will you implement Alistair's anisotropic-grid scaling
