Cavor Vector Viewer (cvv) now reads 'fig' files.

A major milestone in CVV development -- it can now read and display fig files. (The fig format is used by the 'xfig' drawing program and widely supported by other drawing programs.)

As intended, the effort to get this working meant improvements to CDL (Cavor Display List): it now supports filled polygons and user-definable colors; several latent bugs were exposed and fixed, and working with code from 'xfig' and 'transfig' turned up some useful code for other areas of Cavor. Thus 'cvv' makes a great tool in further development of the display side of Cavor as well as being an app in its own right.
