XTCSD: Test for cross-sectional dependence in panel data models

-xtcsd- tests for cross-sectional dependence in Fixed Effects or
Random Effects models. -xtcsd- tests the hypothesis of cross-sectional
independence in panel data models with small T and large N by
implementing two semi-parametric tests proposed by Friedman (1937)
and Frees (1995, 2004), as well as the parametric testing procedure
proposed by Pesaran (2004). -xtcsd- with option pesaran can handle
balanced as well as unbalanced panels.

Thanks to David Drukker for very useful suggestions.
