fs-check/fs-report initial file release

fs-check checks filesystem sizes to see if they are getting too full. It uses a configuration file that specifies the filesystems to check, email contacts, trigger thresholds (percentage or amount used/unused), and a report program to run. It includes fs-report, which shows things like the largest files, the newest files, and core files. It can be run from cron or as a daemon.

This is the first general release. Don't be fooled by the 0.1. This program goes back a decade or so. I've just gotten around to generalizing and autoconfiguring it.
