Multiple redundant properties/fields for epoch

    Details

      Description

      Right now there are three distinct formats for getting and setting spacecraft epoch:

      1. Spacecraft.DateFormat/Spacecraft.Epoch (set only)
      2. Spacecraft.A1ModJulian (get everywhere, set in command mode only)
      3. Spacecraft.Epoch.A1ModJulian (get, set)

      Questions:

      1. Do these exist in R2011a? If so, we need to treat as a backwards-compatibility issue.
      2. Is there any reason to prefer one over the others?
      3. Can we deprecate any of them?

      I personally prefer the format of #3 over #2, if that doesn't cause any issues in other places (ParameterSelectDialog?).
