New version (finally) released.  I'll get to the other patches next, but
wanted to get out the directory layout stuff as soon as possible.

1.06 (october 20, 2007)

  - new on-disk layout for the Filesystem target.  fully backwards
    compatible with the old layout.  also, if max-link count (max
    files in a directory) is hit, this new version will carefully
    rearrange the minimum files necessary to the new layout to
    make room, all automatically.  the new format is xx/xx/*,
    rather than xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/xxxx/* which was stupid and overkill.
    stupid because that's 65k of files in the root, twice ext3's
    limit, and overkill because leaves were always just 1 file.
    thanks to Max Kanat-Alexander for pointing this out, and
    part of the patch to use new layout pattern.

  - quieter (no) error messages on death/control-C from gpg child
    processes who were previously confused by their parent processes
    going away and cleaning up their shared temp files.

  - actually respect the --just flag on restore
