I believe Johannes and I have been able to get ell_orbit and comet_orbit
both capable of handling moon orbits in SVN. Plus ell_orbit is now
working for bodies orbiting the Sun.
It doesn't look like ell_orbit ever worked correctly due to problems
converting from Celestia's coordinate system (where the code came from),
but I think I've fixed this now. This hasn't been an issue since we
don't use ell_orbit except for Charon, but this makes it easier for
people to add their own objects.
I'm going to try adding a lot more moons for testing. Not sure where we
want to draw the line for the standard release.
