[Libguestfs] ANNOUNCE: 'febootstrap' is now called 'supermin'

Because of the confusion generated by calling something 'febootstrap'
which didn't have anything to do with Fedora and didn't generate
bootstrap filesystems, I have renamed 'febootstrap' as 'supermin'.
I also bumped the version number up to 4.1.0.

New home page: http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/supermin/
Downloads:     http://libguestfs.org/download/supermin/
Git repo:      https://github.com/libguestfs/supermin

At present this probably breaks a few things, but I'll fix them as I
go along.  Also this will require new Fedora and (?)Debian packages.

libguestfs will be able to use either febootstrap 3.21 or supermin 4.x,
at least for a while.  If we add major new features into supermin,
then it might be that febootstrap can no longer be used, but I don't
see that happening soon.
