New features:

- `sd' support:

- mcm-daemon sends sd packets if run with -sd option

- just few lines to add in your .sd.tcl to run mcm-start from sd

- simple authentication of session creator (just IP number test, should be
enough for intended use)

- ability to see who is attending the session (only for people who want to
be seen). Output is UGLY (just names@machines and tabs).

- added a "Not yet started" state

- can now be used in unicast or broadcast mode

- quick-install script

See the README file for further explanations.
