[phenixbb] How to use the STIR command in phenix.refine?

I am refining a high-resolution X-ray structure and I would like to  
gradually increase the resolution from 1.5 to 1.0A, as I used to do in  
shelxl. I know the STIR command is the way to do this, but I cannot  
figure out the syntax to use. Currently I am using the following  

high_resolution = 1.0
low_resolution = None
stir = 1.5

When I run phenix.refine (2008_02_08_1610) it echos a line that says  
"STIR 1.5" before the first macrocycle, but at each stage I see  
"(resolution: 1.00 - 21.77)." Obviously I am not using the STIR  
command correctly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in
