[Pipet Devel] project tree and names

I split Loci up into 7 independent projects, independent because they are pretty
much executable without the other components, and may in some cases be a set of
independent executables (as with the editors).  Each of the 7 projects can be a
module in the CVS.

The projects will be named loci-<whatever>, as has been the convention for large
systems like GNOME and KDE.  You will notice below that I have changed some
names (again, and maybe to your annoyance :-).  I would like to make the
"laboratory names" prominent for different components, especially for those the
user will interact with directly.

I abbreviated some names, like inst == instrument (any editor), spec == specimen
(biodata and all display components).  Other nicknames are slide (viewer/browser
locus) as in microscope slide, and stage (figure builder) as in microscope
stage.  I have also renamed AppBroker to Locus Server, which I think could be
the same program for both local and remote installations.

Any comments or questions?
