We want a Perl 6 book. We want it badly enough to write it ourselves. So that's
what we're doing: writing one.

* Lots of grammar and typo fixes
* Added relationship between Perl 6 and Perl 5 to preface
* avoid mojibake where possble
* Basics chapter
    - created this chapter
    - fleshed out some examples
    - added some exercises
* Regex chapter
    - added some text on subsitution and look-arounds
    - added explanation of Match objects
    - added character classes
* Grammar chapter
    - added explanation of inheritance in Perl 6 grammars
    - added explanation of grammar action methods
* Objects chapter
    - added some exercises with answers

There have also been some changes to the support scripts and support
documents for producing the book. These include:

* updated outline of the book
* Added technical TODOs
* added some sample scripts to be worked into various chapters
* add a release target for the Makefile
* updated the release guide
