[Eeglablist] multiple runs/parts of the same paradigm - when to concatenate

Hi Janosch,

This depends on what things you are doing during preprocessing. For
example, if you are doing ICA, then this should be done before
concatenation. For many other steps, like epoching and filtering, this
doesn't really matter (although a filter might take longer to run on the
concatenated than the un-concatenated data, since it would have to deal
with the boundary).
