[Eeglablist] DIPFIT: changing model template .loc file

I did follow the suggestions with some success.  Within dipfit, I selected
"Custom Model", and entered all the default files used when selecting
"Spherical Four-Shell (BESA)" except for the "Model template channel
locations file".  For that, I put together a file based on the electrode
locations of our cap.  I've attached the file as an example (note we use a
59-channel cap with electrodes labeled "EEGX", where X is the number, plus
two VEOG channels).  Here's an example of the first few lines from our .elp

     EEG       VEOG1     127.588      65.992      85.000
     EEG       VEOG2    -130.893     -69.140      85.000
     EEG        EEG1    -109.411      45.735      85.000
     EEG        EEG2    -104.947      70.431      85.000
     EEG        EEG3     102.967     -87.992      85.000
     EEG        EEG4     101.340     -67.224      85.000

There are 58 channels listed since the 59th channel is our reference.
