Alternative BatchPreprocessing, which I will gladly contribute to PixInsight

For some time I've been using and refining my own version of the BatchPreprocessing script, with the following changes:
  - Has the ability to use bias frames as flat darks.  In DSLR photography, these are essentially the same and I use the same files for both.
  - Has the ability to apply a simple cosmetic correction without creating a process instance in advance.
  - Minor refinements to some error messages.

It is called BatchPreprocessingFD and is not quite in sync with the latest version of BatchPreprocessing, but I gladly offer it to the developers of PixInsight if they want to take features from it and add them to BatchPreprocessing.

Tying this up -- I now consider this obsolete and am using WeightedBatchPreprocessing instead, simply putting the flat darks in as another group of darks.
