Version 1.4 of vlock

Release Notes: vlock 1.4 now supports optionally disabling the SysRQ keys while the entire console display is locked. All other changes are merely cosmetical, cleaning up license statements, includes, and makefile rules.

    Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that would sometimes close stdin if a script was requested and later unloaded due to missing dependencies.

    Release Notes: Vlock's architecture was again changed from using multiple executables to a single one with plugin support. The main helpers "vlock-all", "vlock-new", and "vlock-nosysrq" were all converted to plugins to keep filesystem based permission checking. Plugins may be scripts or shared objects and can add functions like muting the sound, pausing music or movie playback, and even eye candy screen savers.
