Add a TransientTerm to the equation and step through the solution with
time steps and sweeps if necessary.

The coefficients can have spatially varying values in FiPy. Define the
coefficients as face or cell variables.

I need to see it defined mathematically to understand how to implement
it in FiPy, but I'm confident it's possible to define it.
