    Minimize particle movement during repartitioning
    Attempt to keep particles on local nodes by comparing the new and old regions and
    permuting the solution by picking new regions with the largest number of 
    cells in the old regions. Gives an unmoved fraction of around 42% for larger
    numbers of ranks (compared to `1/nrank` for the current scheme).
    Doesn't make a huge improvement to runtimes, seems to be around 10% on a
    repartition step of `EAGLE_25`, and we only do that infrequently.
