library update

what works now:

  - "library" package with some scripts to modify and view the store
  - papers/md5.txt for description of md5-addressed content
  - an "About" button that googles for the ID of a ramblings post

todo: an easy way to view a file in the local library cache.

since this is actually allowing the execution of a command on the
local machine it needs to be done with a bit of care..  the simplest
way is to define a file type that can be passed to firefox.  or a
protocol handler.  i can't get those to work though.. i don't
understand firefox: it's gotten quite closed down over the years.

Ok.  Editing the mimetypes.rdf file in my firefox config tree,
disabling the system defaults and telling it to ask made it work.
Apparently this is a bug[1].
