Beta Functions at the RF Cavities

This concerns only the transverse coupled bunch mode calculations. All previous calculations of coupled bunch motion that I know (ZAP, BBI) assume a constant beta function around the ring (smooth focusing approximation). There is no reason not to use the correct beta function values, therefore clinchor uses and requires values of the beta functions at the RF cavities.
