Changes from 1.94.4 to 1.94.5

A straightforward patch release, 99% from the collected 
1.94.4 patches:

o digest_rm_fronter and digest_rm_footer now work.
o unsubcribe_policy now has +confirm feature
o More hostile address checking
o archive2.pl makes archives world readable.
o bounce had an innocuous y2k bug, and wanted a 'bounces' list password even 
  when called as unsub
o better description of the moderator function.
o Fixes 'restrict_post = #!$list' substitution and blank lines
  in config files
o Better error reporting when majordomo.cf is wrong.
o Detects some attachments sent as commands
o Approve commands can span lines now.
o resend has better messages for taboo_headers problems
o fixed: header corruption when Subject: is blank and subject tags are used.
