add XLALComputePSDfromSFTs and test script
XLALComputePSDandNormSFTPower() introduced in !1294 (merged) is quite a monster with 11 inputs and 3 outputs. When extracting it from
lalapps_ComputePSD I had already thought about disentangling it, but that would require more significant rewriting and probably some duplication, since (at least currently) the computation of the two quantities is just too closely linked. After discussion with @rodrigo.tenorio here is a new wrapper function
XLALComputePSDfromSFTs that returns only the simple
finalPSD vector and hides away the input options that are irrelevant to getting this most simple output. This should actually be enough for most users.
I'm also adding a test script for both the original and new function, though that's the WIP part, as it should still be extended to test a few more things.
