Alternative sandslide algorithm

In my doctoral thesis I used an alternative sandslide algorithm than the one available in sisyphe. It was developed several years ago when this technique was very new in sediment transport simulations.

It's now a little bit outdated (it's quite slow and can only be used in serial calculations) but very robust. When I used the standard sandslide in sisyphe, in rare situations (extreme conditions) the algorithm failed and destroyed the bathymetry.

So I keep the old one as an alternative algorithm around. For testing purposes and as backup. It can be found in the gitorious repository (commit 9dc1c1e33b54e49).

The results of these two algorithms are identical by the way. At least for the eye...

Have fun.
