This module re-orders the particle data in
according to a space-filling Hilbert curve. The idea behind is that
interacting particles, being close in space, are also close in memory for
better cache efficiency. The module is used and constructed internally by
halmd.mdsim.neighbour, i.e. manual construction is not needed.
