Hi everyone,

I was trying to use yt 3.0 with the Gasoline sample dataset that we have available on http://yt-project.org/data , and it fails in two ways:

1) yt cannot figure out what the dataset is using the simple "load" command as in:

from yt.mods import *
ds = load(filename)
yt.utilities.exceptions.YTOutputNotIdentified: Supplied ('agora_1e11.0040',) {}, but could not load!

2) When I manually ask it to see the file as a TipsyDataset, it also fails, as it expects parameters to be set:

from yt.mods import *
ds = TipsyDataset(filename)
  File "/Users/chummels/src/yt-i386/src/yt-hg/yt/frontends/sph/data_structures.py", line 396, in __init__
AttributeError: 'TipsyDataset' object has no attribute 'parameters'

This seems like a bug.  Any ideas as to a solution?  This dataset did not come with a parameter file for it.
