Update of /cvsroot/gaim/gaim/doc

This is a nontrivial change to the way signal handlers are implemented
and used in Tcl. This changes signal handlers to being standard Tcl
functions by way of a little bit of namespace glue. In addition,
in/out arguments to signals are now implemented via variables which
should be upvar'd; this is a little more verbose than the old method,
but it should fit people's Tcl expectations a little better, since
normally Tcl function arguments are not call-by-reference.
This still isn't 64-bit safe, and the documentation wasn't updated. I
expect there will be more nontrivial changes to Tcl before 2.0, so
those things are pending.

The Gaim Tcl interface provides a Tcl API for many useful gaim
functions. Like the perl API, the Tcl API does not provide
access to every corner of gaim exposed by the @e C interface. It does,
