This is a release candidate for xscope 1.4, which includes these new
- RANDR decoding updated from just 0.x protocol to handle 1.0 - 1.4
- Atoms recorded from InternAtom & GetAtomName to use for display in
  other requests referencing the atoms
- Property requests now also show these property types in a more natural 
  format instead of as just lists of bytes: 
  UTF8_STRING, atoms, cardinals, integers, and windows
- new -I command line flag to enter interactive mode immediately at startup
- experimental support for reading a previously recorded file.
    If you run "xscope -r -v0 > xscope.raw", then you can later run
    "xscope -f xscope.raw" to decode the data.

and a bunch of cleanups & bug fixes along the way.

Please test and let me know what needs fixing before a final 1.4 release.
