For each of the input source-list columns X and Y: a histogram of position against flux

These are not so much histograms as binned averages of various position-related quantities at a series of values of detected flux. This pair of histograms is written to tables X_VS_S and Y_VS_S in the output data set.

Log10 of the flux values are taken before the binning process is begun.

A description of the columns written (taking again the $Y$ spatial coordinate as the example) is as follows:
