First Stab at NSE scripting
From: Mark Baggett <mark.baggett () morris com>

Here is my first attempt at putting together a nse script.  I'm  sure there
is a more elegant way to handle the strings and a way to multi-thread the
network request to speed it up.   But hey, I threw it together in 3 hours
without any LUA coding experience so cut me a little slack.

The following nse script will look for /~root on the server to see if the
USERDIR Directive is enabled.  If it finds a /~root directory it will brute
force the users based upon variable CHARSET and MAXLENGTH.

Your feedback is appreciated.
