I think Erik knows a bit more about this, but he's traveling. It would
be an algorithm that does a true 3d decomposition of the PME grid, to
allow for using more PME nodes (right now this is limited to the number
of grid cells in the x dimension, which means you can not use more than
three or four times this number of nodes).

I am not aware of this. Maybe Berk or Justin knows?
