TimeCoordinator (GNodeRole)

A TimeCoordinator is a GNode responsible for managing time in simulation. Typically, a simulation will have a single TimeCoordinator which is a direct descendant of the WorldGNode. For example, d1.time is the alias of the TimeCoordinator in the Millinocket demo, using this gridworks repo.

It is also possible to have a hierarchy of TimeCoordinators working together. This could be useful in a simulation where a loosely tied sub-grid requires higher time resolution in order for the networks simulations to converge.
