Agenda ppath_agenda

Calculation of complete propagation paths.

In contrast to ppath_step_agenda that controls the ray tracing
inside each grid box, this agenda determines how complete paths are
determined. The standard choice is to do this in a step-by-step
manner using ppath_step_agenda, with this agenda set to call

The WSV rte_los is both input and output as in some cases it is
determined as part of the propagation path calculations (such as
radio link calculations).
