        The value of _diffrn_detector.number_of_axes gives the
               number of axes of the positioner for the detector identified
               by _diffrn_detector.id.

               The word 'positioner' is a general term used in
               instrumentation design for devices that are used to change
               the positions of portions of apparatus by linear
               translation, rotation or combinations of such motions.

               Axes which are used to provide a coordinate system for the
               face of an area detetctor should not be counted for this
               data item.

               The description of each axis should be provided by entries
               in DIFFRN_DETECTOR_AXIS.
