        ftp.funet.fi::perlsnap

Two larg-ish changes:

(1) lib/unicode files renamed to be lib/unicore to avoid conflicts
    with the core Unicode files and possible Unicode:: modules.
(2) Added a lot of floating point classification APIs so that
    we will be able to to poke at NVs and tell whether they are
    are Infinities or NaNs.  Related to to this is a push towards
    making fp ops *not* to throw exceptions on overflows and
    other abnormalities.

TomC agreed to synchronize the core doc licensing.

Math::BigInt and Getopt::Long updates.

VMS test tweakage.

Changes since the last:

             For this first cut, assume none such APIs exist in non-UNIXoid
             platforms-- this is of course too unkind: Win32 rumoredly has
             _fpclass() and _isnan(), and VMS/VOS very probably have some
             of the APIs available. 	The only thing Perl uses at the moment
             is Perl_isnan() (has been in use for a while now).
