For a moment, I was worried things had gone a bit awry, but a little constructive email dialog straightened things out, and even earned me a kudo. There actually is one little issue I fretted over somewhat, but since there isn’t anything [...]

In addition, since “catalyst” requires a radius value in each cell, I can use the presence of a nonzero catalyst radius as the flag for catalyst (instead of treating it as a “state”).
