the phonon DOS is calculated by matdyn.x, using the tetrahedron
method of P. Bloech et al, Phys. Rev. B49, 16223 (1994). It should
be easy to generalize the method to projected DOS, but it will require 
some coding. Presently the DOS is calculated in subroutine dos_t 
(the one in pwtools/matdyn.f90, not the one in PW/).
