Ability to add trapezoidal area load

The ability to add trapezoidal area loads would be useful when sizing joists for snow drift loads.  This will help compare options with different joist spacings.

    As this primarily pertains to roof members, we will investigate adding this new load entry type for rafters and roof beams where snow drift loads are relevant.  If there are applications that make this relevant to floor joists and beams, please let us know so we can adjust accordingly.
