SignPuddle 1.5 ready to go

Hi Anny,

I transfered all of the 1.0 signs yesterday, so any signs entered in the 
last 20 hours wouldn't be included.

This is a one way transfer.  I could transfer the 1.0 dictionary again, 
but it would overwrite the 1.5 dictionary.

You can use SignPuddle 1.0 as long as you want.  Val and I don't plan on 
taking them down any time soon.  But 1.5 has a lot of improvements and 
is a much better product.

Merging will become a part of 1.5 in the future, so a SignPuddle Server 
can sync up with multiple PocketPuddles.   But this won't include 1.0
