Summary description:  Consolidated WEB macros for DVI and PDF output

Announcement text:
 This updated version of the 'pwebmac' package makes a few
 cosmetic changes in the 'pwebmac.tex' macros that won't affect
 users.  (Two if-else blocks were slightly simplyfied and the
 'link color' can be changed in a single spot.)

 It does, however, make very significant changes to the
 'makeall' driver script, which is now capable of producing
 twice as many tarballs than its predecessor. 
 It also adds timestamps on almost all PDF documents. 
 And it typesets the CTWILL program in its own format with
 mini-indexes per spread.

 Lastly, this update adds file 'index.md' that can be used
 to produce a central 'entry point' into the huge collection
 of tarballs and their contents.
 In total, it references a library of 58 volumes with 5,941 pages
 (and counting).
