I don't recall any. The mesh refinement has been made significantly more 
general, but the general principle still holds.

Good point. I don't recall the details (one could probably find this out from 
the revision history in git) but my suspicion is that we figured that that if 
one sets time_step and old_time_step appropriately, that many things work just 
by themselves in all of the places where we used the function. There are still 
two instances where we use a variable use_bdf2_scheme.

In any case, I've removed the function:
