Make sky masks

This function may be performed alone by calling the script with entrystage and finalstage=`makeskymasks'. The actual processing is performed by tasks mosaicprep and padmask. The basic idea of this function is to limit the area of sky which is to be simulated, just to save time and memory. Limits are imposed in two separate stages, as described below.
