dxtbx: the diffraction experiment toolbox

The diffraction experiment toolbox in xia2 has now been migrated to cctbx. This is a two edged sword: it is a good thing as it can be used for other projects, but it is a problem as well as from the next release you will need a cctbx with the dxtbx contained within it and correctly configured.

This is necessarily a breaking change as the API for the dxtbx has changed since import into the cctbx, so I will need to modify xia2 to use the new API, and will remove the old dxtbx.

From later on today the svn version of xia2 is likely to be "broken" therefore if you have an older version of cctbx.
