[Orekit Developers] ImpulseManeuver In Specific Frame

Hello All,

Currently impulsive maneuvers assume that we want the maneuver to be in the general orientation of the spacecraft.  Often times maneuvers are in a different attitude mode than the operational attitude mode.  One way to simulate this would be by having segmented attitudes, however that is a bit coarse when really all we are saying is that we want to express the impulsive maneuver in terms of a specific attitude override.  A way to do this would be to provide a frame parameter on the impulsive maneuver that would allow that to be specified when it is setup.  If we make this change in way that would not break any of the current unit tests or calling conventions is that something you would want us to contribute back, with the appropriate unit tests accompanying it.
