[Mesa-users] Star Mass Loss Question

Thanks so much for the feedback! I've been trying to modify the code based
on your suggestions, but I'm running into what seems like a strange problem
in that I can't set mstar_dot and xa(i,j) at the same time.  It seems that
as soon as there's a change in mass, the code won't change the abundances
any more.

I'm currently trying to write some code that puts the change in abundances
in other_winds or other_split_mix, so that MESA will set abundances first
and then take the mass from the outer shell after those are done, but I'm
running into the same problem of only being able to set abundances or mass
loss, but not both. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it

Also, congratulations Dr. Schwab, Dr. Marchant, and Dr. Wolf!  That's
awesome! (Sorry about the title mistake).
