[theforum] Automated content reminder emails migrated

Hi all,

The reminder scripts that send email to the content list have been 
migrated to tron, modified to use Net::SMTP instead of qmail-inject, and 
their cron jobs have been re-enabled.

Dean, I went ahead and installed these in your user account, as they 
were before.  I also took the liberty of migrating a bunch of other perl 
scripts in your bin directory, installing their CPAN dependencies and so 
on.  I did not copy/install or test the C programs or iptables wizardry 
-- that stuff's too far above my pay grade :-)

There's also a bin.tempest/ in your homedir with all the unmodified 
files from tempest and, in bin/, a diff of the changes I made.

Of the ones running via cron, only article_reminder.pl has really been 
tested (as you can see).  The other two, user_reminder.pl and 
comment_reminder ran, but found nothing to do so they're only really 
known to compile...
