This patch changes the madprop to 'g' and add it to the doc (Sorry for
being slow...)

I didn't know that they were listed in op.h, and the 'B's probably would
not conflict, but for safety I changed it madprop to 'g' (the first free
lower case letter I could find).

We are running a bit out of letter so I was planning to refactor the
madprop to use strings instead of letters (i.e. change
<char mad_key> to <const char* mad_key> and <curmad('X', ...)>
to <cumad("random", ...)>, any objections?
