MoL parameter for skipping MoL_PostStep on initial data

Issue #1137 closed

The following patch introduces a parameter for controlling whether MoL overwrites the boundaries of initial data (via genuine boundary conditions, or syncs and prolongation). Some exact solutions provide pointwise values for all the grid points, and thus don't need any sort of boundary treatment.

    I wonder whether the parameter should be called e.g. "apply_BC_initially" instead?

    I wanted to make it more apparent that this also includes refinement and interprocessor boundaries. Is this not so relevant?

    I was more concerned about the term "overwrite", which sounds as if MoL was doing something special. Instead, it only applies the usual kind of boundary conditions that are already applied during evolution. Maybe something like "set_boundaries"?
