Make a random, Poisson-distributed events image

This function may be performed alone by calling the script with entrystage and finalstage=`poissonize'. The randomisation is performed by the task impoissonize. The result is an integer-valued image which should look similar to a real XMM-Newton EPIC image of the given exposure.
