[Sidefx-houdini-list] Mantra crops

I was thinking it would work in two modes,
1. render me m x n crops
2. render me this specific crop ( left right top bottom )

But I also thought it would be nice if you could just specify a list of
crops that you define yourself. This would be useful because very often
its only one part of the image giving trouble and you want that bit more
finely diced.

Crop ( left1 right1 top1 bottom1 ) ( left2 right2 top2 bottom2 ) ( left3
right3 top3 bottom3 )....etc

I like the command-line to mantra option, then a single IFD can feed all
the different crop renders, doesn't matter if it's binary etc.

RFE: specify camera crops on the command line to Mantra please :)
