Subject: code release

I have put code on the /pub/members/e/escargo directory of
that implements the following features off of our prioritized list:

New application name (the window title says Mailbox Web Publisher)
The tabs have been renamed (Mailboxes, HTML Options, Define Filters,
Apply Filters, Publish)
There are now next and back buttons that skip over inactivated tabs
The application now uses the calling directory as the working directory
(although the browser for mailboxes starts in the home directory; I could
change this to use the calling directory if that was desirable)
The test directory is gone.
There are now little status labels on the main window above the help window.

I have not yet done the following:

Splash screen (being written by Corey, integrated by me)
The string rewrite needs feedback.
The help messages will need redoing (since the screens were reorganized)
I have not yet added more filter predicates.
I need feedback about where the widgets should go.
The construction lines are still there for now.
I don't thing all entry fields handle return yet.

I still need the HTML options preview code from Quang. Corey will be
looking at the subject browser.

Most of the small remaining items are tweaks. Try the code out, and
see what I forgot to do. Let me know via e-mail what you want me to
do next.
