New release - 20100626 - first, simple, file organisation UI

This release includes a first user interface for organising files. If you open up the settings you will now see a link to 'Add file organisation rule'.

A couple of caveats, though. First, the choice of file/folder structures that bliss can assess is currently pre-determined. You can't specify your own if yours doesn't match the ones in the list. Second, when the file organisation rule has done its job, it displays the results with the other compliance 'detail' when you click the 'why?' link. There generally isn't enough space for this, however you can double click on the text and copy and paste it elsewhere. I don't feel comfortable suggesting this but I wanted to get the feature working to some extent so I could get comments on it!

I also had a customer request in the week to fix the MIME types where bliss had previously set them to be simply 'image'. This fix is in this new release, and you don't have to do anything to activate it. If bliss sees cover art with a MIME type of just 'image', it will change it to 'image/[whatever image format it is]'

I also fixed a problem that was preventing bliss recognising music files when you choose the root directory on Windows, e.g. 'H:\'.
