Hi LibreOffice devs,

OK, here's the next version (0.7).

This version has some user interface improvements, and probably some
improved bugs. ;)

add-modelines takes arguments:

$ ./add-modelines -?
./add-modelines: illegal option -- ?
Usage: ./add-modelines [-z] [-s "<sourcefile glob>"] [-p <path to

So, now you can:

* use -z to zap existing modelines (if they are the first and last lines
of a file)
* use -s to specify file suffixes. Eg. "-s *.cxx *.cpp *.hxx *.silly"
* use -p to specify the path to your LO source directory

These are optional, and if none are used, defaults are set within the
script. If you omit an option, here's the defaults

* Don't zap existing modelines
* Use the current working directory for the search
* Look for *.cpp and *.cxx to add modelines to

Should I start submitting patches for new changes to this file, rather
than ML posts? ;)

Please let me know how it goes for you, and if you experience
turbulence, and if it meets your needs.

P.S. I'm not submitting the test git patches I ran to validate the
changes, in the interest of space. But I can make them again by request.
