Will now use cookielib if it's available and maintains separate cookie
files for separate users - with both cookielib and ClientCookie.

authentication are the next ones. (See the TODO list - nothing

*UPDATE* scraper.py    Version 1.3.0

*UPDATE* proxycleaner.py    Version 1.0.1

Improvements since last public release :
Slight docs improvement.
Speed improvement in binleave and binunleave.

*NEW* cookielib_example.py    Version 1.0.0
An example of code for fetching URLs that will happily use
ClientCookie *or* cookielib (Python 2.4) *or* neither.
