I'm sorry this does not make any sense to me.. if I'm computing the  
wannier centers I'm
expecting to find  a print section in the wannier section (LOCALIZE).

Maybe.. this does not make too much sense if you think that you may  
want to
use a certain settings for LOCALIZE for the TOTAL_DIPOLE.. etc.. and  
set for LINEAR RESPONSE.. so the LOCALIZE section MUST be inside the  

So.. I still like it is now.. maybe the name of the sections do not  
make too much sense..
but I'm opened in having more meaningful names..

of course you can.. it's everything setup now (in the sense that one  
can use the keywords
already introduced but not implemented..) and we should make the  
input fully working..
this would be ideal..
