Response function recipe

On a regular basis, the observatory observes a standard star that has a reasonably well characterised spectral energy distribution. The purpose of the lw_respfunc recipe is to use this data to calculate the instrument throughput. It is used for quality control purposes and observers will have little use for this routine.
