NSURL - bugfix to parse username/password from URL correctly.
NSURLHandle - Added support for getting and setting properties on files.
Added support for http and https GET and POST with proxying and basic
NSDecimal - added support in configuration scripts for detecting GMP for
the time (not yet) when NSDecimal can use that library for better performance
GSMime - new GNUstep specific classes for parsing mime and http documents.
Used by NSURLhandle http support, but also fully documented and providing an
extensible api for parsing mail/web data.

now thread safe. Also fixes to improve communication between machines with
multiple network interfaces, only some of which share a common network.

Nib/IM loading - code tidied, redundant code removed.
gstep-xdps (AppKit backend)
Updated to use XGBitmapImageRep.
Added DPS_ERROR macro.
