So long, and thanks for all the fish. (BusyBox 1.2.2)

Ok, BusyBox 1.2.2 is up.  There are still things wrong with it, but you've 
gotta ship sometime, and I've procrastinated long enough.

The checkin I'm just did for the news.html page also switched the maintainer 
notes to say Denis, and fixed up the code to generate by temporarily adding a third regex 
to, ala:

                $text =~ s/SKIP_\w+\(.*?"\s*\)//sxg;
                $text =~ s/USE_\w+\(\s*?(.*?)"\s*\)/$1"/sxg;
                $text =~ s/USAGE_\w+\(\s*?(.*?)"\s*\)/$1"/sxg;

(Check the entry for "ls" to see the difference.)  This is needed because 
there are still old USAGE_ macros in usage.h that I never got around to 
converting to USE_ macros.  It's not fixed in 1.2.2 but I ran a fixed build 
by hand to generate the current BusyBox.html in the downloads directory.  
(Cleaning out USAGE_ from usage.h and is a todo item for 
Denis, not me. :)

In case anybody missed it, Denis Vlasenko is now officially maintainer of 
BusyBox.  I'm out.  Future releases are his problem now. :)
