Celebrate August in style with a new plush foafbot 0.4!

The improvements in this version address privacy:

* merging happens on mbox_sha1sum (implicit sha1summed properties added
in for every vanilla mbox property) so people can don't need to expose
their email addresses

* support for giving the bot a passwordless GPG key and getting people
to encrypt their FOAF files to it, in order to limit the flow of the
information to that bot instance only. For more info on this, see
http://usefulinc.com/foaf/encryptingFoafFiles and the ChangeLog

While adding these new features, I failed to address anything in my
existing TODO list.
