catalog matching

I tried to get more specific—on paper—about what you can and can't learn by matching catalogs, and why simultaneous modeling of imaging is so much better. It turns out that it is better not really because it overcomes all the disadvantages of catalog matching (though it does overcome many of them), but mainly because it has different (and better) explicit and implicit assumptions. Unfortunately, this is getting a bit subtle.
