I don't think there is anything that needs to be changed in the code --- unless Rich tells me differently.
The FGONG/OSC VAR(9) assignments in the code match the documentation.
Of course, I'm naively assuming that matching the documentation is a good thing in this case.

Now we'll wait to see if Rich wants to change epsilon for GYRE to be like epsilon in FGONG/OSC files.
The GYRE documentation says epsilon = "energy generation rate (ers/s/gm)", so I may need to add on the eps_grav term.
