hashcash-1.17 is released.  As well as all cumulative patches and bug
fixes, it includes a new bugfix for the double-spend protection
failure reported recently by Steve Crook.

The double-spend protection failure arises from a bug introduced in
1.14 (when I made some higher-level apis to the hashcash database

Also in this release I put Hubert's hashfork.py and hashfork.c in the
contrib directory.
