    Hi Alberto,

    Thanks... Yes, I'm very familiar with USRMED from past work. I didn't
    realize it could be used in that way. One particular problem I'm
    interested in requires a 180 reflection at an air-vacuum boundary i.e.
    track departing an air region into a vacuum region is reflected back
    into the air region. In this case, it's not clear if the rotation
    occurs in air or the vacuum.
