This instrument is an example of how to use thet newly developed (and experimental)
Scatter_logger family of components in McStas.
In this example a set of Monitor_nD's are used to monitor the m-value needed to reflect neutrons.
This is done by binning the impinging intesity by m-value and z-coordinate along the length of the guide.
Furthermore reflections events are split among themonitors by their seuqential number: Only the first
reflection is considered by mnd1, the second by mnd2 etc. All reflection are bundled into mnttot

Also included (but commented out) is a code-snippet that would dump the lost neutrons to stdout

Example: Test_Scatter_log_mvalues LENGTH=10

Input parameters

Parameters in boldface are required; the others are optional.
