Bug Fixes:
* mailto: prefix not being added to mbox_sha1sum
* friends not being wrapped in knows element

* spam protection is now an option. You can either generate
raw mbox elements, or mbox_sha1sum elements.
* Expanded documentation to include details of what to do with
your FOAF description, including FOAF Bulletin Board proposal:

* A proposal for using the RDFWeb Wiki as the basis for a user
maintained directory of FOAF documents. Designed as a bootstrap
to get FOAF descriptions into spiders, e.g. Edd's foafbot.
* Uses the W3C Tidy and XSLT services to transform the
FOAFBulletinBoard into a document containing rdfs:seeAlso elements.
* Web services in action! ;)

Feedback welcome, particularly bug reports. There's been plenty
of clangers dropped.

Have fun,
