WIND and cellhd/* files are read and written using the functions in

If the format is extended, rd_cellhd.c would need to be modified not
to complain about those lines.

Or just extend "struct Cell_head" to include the additional fields and
use that instead of a distinct G3D_Region type (i.e. make G3D_Region
an alias for "struct Cell_head"). G__read_Cell_head() would need to
allow for old WIND files which don't have those fields, either by
reading a WIND3 file or just using top=0.0, bottom=1.0.
