[IDV #OME-473834]: downloading satellite images

Hi Dave,
       You can write out the image using a ISL script, but I am not aware of 
output local area file. Actually, if you load a sequence a area image from ADDE 
server, you only need to do the write to local one time to save the whole 
sequence. But you can explore the ISL or python to try to do it automatically.
