xspec tcl script to run multiple fakeits

A handy new script to run fakeit many times for a given input response, background and model then write the results to a FITS binary table. At the moment the script only works for one input file and just does a fit after each fakeit and stores the resulting parameters. It thus provides a way of testing for bias in the fit statistic. The next step is to allow testing for bias in the production of confidence regions.

Updated 9/16/06 with improved speed and error-checking.
