First beta of SDWebImage 3.0

This version is a rewrite of the lib using iOS 5.0 as minimum target.
The lib as thus been refactored to use blocks/GCD from the ground up.
As a consequence, all delegate code style has been removed. The result
is a lot less lines of code and more flexibility.

### Using blocks
-If your project's deployement target is set to iOS 4+, you may want to use the success/failure blocks to be
-notified when image have been retrieved from cache.
+With blocks, you can be notified about the image download progress and whenever the image retrival
+has completed with success or not:
// Here we use the new provided setImageWithURL: method to load the web image
[cell.imageView setImageWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@""]

Note: neither your success nor failure block will be call if your image request is canceled before completion.
