I'm trying to add some diagnostics (components of topographic form stress)
to MITgcm, and I'm a bit confused. The obvious thing to do would seem to
be to modify diagnostics_init_early.F to define the appropriate cdiag, tdiag,
etc, (which puts them into the common block "DIAGNOSTICS.h"), and then
to activate them in diagnostics_main_init.F by appropriate use of 
However, those things needed for argument list, and defined in
"DIAGNOSTICS.h" aren't visible within diagnostics_main_init.F
because the common block isn't included. I guess I can fix this by
including the common block in my personal version of 
diagnostics_main_init.F as well as modifying the ADDTOLIST calls,
but it would seem easier to just #include "DIAGNOSTICS.h" in the
standard distribution version. Or am I missing something here?
