Issue I407 [80,resolved]
  Custom distributions in FLY2.

  As of 8.0.4-TEST2, a custom distribution can be incorporated as
  folllows in a FLY2 file.  The distribution is defined by a function
  that returns a random number.

    function my_dist() return simion.rand() ^ 2 end
    particles {
      standard_beam {
        n = 100,
        ke = distribution(my_dist)

  Feature is undocumented in SIMION 8.0.2 manual.

  FLY2 files with custom distributions cannot be fully saved from
  the SIMION GUI.  Edit with a text editor instead.

  Discussed further in

  Resolved in 8.0.4-TEST2
