McStas instrument for simulating the IMAT - imaging and diffraction
New McStas moderator file (G. Skoro, ISIS Facility) was added
Components positions were extracted from IMAT final design (March 2016) 
Choppers were not added to this model
Diffraction detectors are

1. For reference use G. Burca et al., Modelling of an imaging beamline at the ISIS pulsed neutron source, 
Journal of Instrumentation, 8 (2013), no 10,
2. Results from calculations published in the previous paper were obtained using McStas ISIS_moderator component (Face="W5")
