Patch to print out orbitals in the atom program (+tests)

I've attached a patch for the atom program to print out the orbital expansion 
coefficients. The tar file contains two example inputs and corresponding 
outputs from my machine. I've been using it for a few weeks now and it seems 
to work fine. Today, I've tested the patch with the latest development version 
and it still works properly. Would someone be so kind to review the patch and 
include in the svn repository?

We find this particularly useful to generate databases of atomic densities 
(and density matrices) that are used for (iterative) Hirshfeld partitioning. 
We distribute the script that generates these databases. (It can be found 
This script feeds inputs to the CP2K atom program and processes the output. If 
this patch is included, the script becomes easier to use because it can then 
just work with the official CP2K releases, instead of patched version.
