[SM-Announce] Release v0.5 code name

After a few polls, listening to irc and making a final decision we have
the following system for our release code names:
1. Spell series will be used. This means we can pick from thousands of
games and spells to identify our releases.
2. I will try to keep the various levels of spells inline with our
release levels, such that 0.x will have lower spell names and 1.x, 2.x,
etc will have higher spell names.
This is inline with our distro's history and style.
As for our current release of v0.5, I have chosen a spell that comes to
us from the D&D (adv edition from TRS[tm]) game and describes the
resulting release pretty good I think:
shillelagh = "changes oaken cudgel (club) into magical weapon..."
ingredients = "oaken club, mistletoe and shamrock leaf"
Something hard, something magic and a bit of luck have got us where we
are... so be it says I.
I want to thank everyone for their contribution and help in deciding
what direction this is/was going to go. Let's not spend anymore time on
the code name and work on getting this thing out there!
