[Eeglablist] cohangle distribution

The computations performed in crossf() are documented in the J Neurosci 
Methods paper (Delorme & Makeig, 2004). There are four modes (linear 
coherence or phase coherence, with or without the ERP).

The data save option you are looking for is present but hidden in the 
current version of crossf(). Add flag/arg pair  'savecoher',1 to your 
call - then the last listed output, 'cohangles', will have the 
single-trial cross-spectral vectors. I have  documented this option - if 
will be in the next release, but should work  with the current version.
