Subject: final code release

Well, final for now anyways.

This release of the code on has the following changes:

Context help has been added; Brad started it and I finished it. The
widgets have been reorganized since he started, and I had to change his
work to make it conform.

For Corey, I made it so that a return in the new filter name box automattically
does an add.

The processing page has been redone taking advantage of the single output
archive. When you select a mailbox, you get the list of filters assigned
to it, which you can then edit. Filters are added from the available
filters list and you and reorder them if necessary.

The logic for activating tabs and for updating checks on the generate
tab have been changed. They are better, but I don't know that they
are perfect. There's a lot of cases.

The project startup now defaults to a directory under the home directory
if it can find one and a mailbox file named mbox in that home directory.

If those conditions are met, a simple scenario would be to start the program,
go to the mailbox tab and click add, then go to the generate tab and
click generate. Then exit. About six actions.

Feedback is welcome. Corey will have to set the stage for our user
testing. I hope you and Quang know where we are going to do it, because
I don't.

Unless there are bugs, this implementation is probably final until we
come up with out priority list of revisions.
