A test instrument to compare sources and check they provide the valid
sprectrum and intensity. It shows that the first 4 flat sources are equivalent,
the 2 Maxwellian sources as well.

WARNING: Result of test no. 1 for Source_adapt.comp is not correct if MPI is used, as
that source component does not support MPI.
