Hardware failure

The website is running on the old server. The new server stopped working at about 0200 UTC on 2020-08-22. The database was restored from 2020-08-21 00:59:15+00 UTC. We think we have covered all commits. Nothing should be missing. Any changes you made to your accounts after the restore date will be lost. Sorry about that.

Add wireshark and tshark after repocopies from ethereal and tethereal
respectively.  Wireshark is a rename of ethereal after the principal
developer moved companies and lost the Ethereal copyright.

Messenger, don't shoot!

Now the ethereal binary is called wireshark, the tethereal binary is
called tshark, and idl2eth is now idl2wrs.  All other binaries have
kept the same name.

In addition to this name change, I have also changed the PREFIX from X11BASE
