Release of version 1.0 of gnu-pw-mgr

This is the initial release.  It was actually released a week ago,
but I've been polishing the web pages and readying the savannah

This program is designed to make it easy to reconstruct difficult
passwords when they are needed, while limiting the risk of attack.
The user of this program inputs a self-defined transformation of a web site
URL and obtains the password and user name hint for that web site.
You must, however, be able to remember this password id, or the password
is lost forever.

The algorithms for producing passwords have been pounded on and examined
quite a bit, so I do not expect a need for updates that would invalidate
passwords created by the current version.  The most likely updates would
be for language clarifications (documentation/examples), and perhaps
accommodations for unforeseen password requirements.
