fakeit in v12

Changes to support use of Gaussian statistics when simulating the model part of the source file. If there is a pre-existing dataset then its value of is_Poisson is used when faking. If there is no pre-existing dataset then Poisson statistics are used.

This is required for Swift BAT simulations but also should be useful for other instruments which have non-Poisson statistics.
