Flag visibilities with weights below the provided threshold.
Usage: msdata threshold
msdata : str MS data set containing the data to be flagged.
threshold : float Visibilities with a weight below the specified
value will be flagged. Must be positive.

version 1.3 changes
- Minor fixes (prog name in optparse info).

version 1.2 changes
- Minor fixes.
version 1.1 changes
- Added option -v that allows you to just get how many visibilities will
be flagged (but without actually flagging the data).
