time to present something new: snapshot releases.

Nothing special, just a recent tarball with all branches merged, to ease beta-testing.

instead of keyboard, fixes setting mouse or mixed mouse-keyboard
bindings from SawfishConfig (keyboard-only bindings still work)

use beautify-symbol-name instead
