[MITgcm-support] only eta as open boundary ?

I use nonlinearFreesurf in my configuration similar to as sinusoidal
elevation (simple M2) at BC. Also the nonlinFreeSurf = 1 at data namelist.
Should not this work? and show non-zero elevation inside the model as well
The method for converting the elevation into bartropic velocities seems to
work, but I wanted to apply a realistic condition to the model ( components
of M2, M4, S2 and O1 ) therefore, using eta BC seems to be more accurate.
