Gas water heater wasted pilot light energy

Jeff has done some work showing that while most of the time, water heater pilot light energy is useful, there are some scenarios where a significant amount of pilot light energy is wasted: in solar backup tanks and when the water heater is in unconditioned space in warm climates.

We should add this to DOE2 and E+ if possible.
