 Add two tools useful for package maintainers:

 backport-rev attempts to merge a revision from the trunk in the current
 directory (presumably one of the release branches).

 gen-bugnote fetches a bug title from bugs.wireshark.org and formats it
 for inclusion in the release notes.

Directory: /trunk/tools/
  Changes    Path            Action
  +100 -0    backport-rev    Added
  +89 -0     gen-bugnote     Added

Those look very handy.

Tangentially, this has made me realize that `ls tools` is getting
quite long now, is it worth a bit of reorganization? Most of the
scripts fall into one of the following categories:

- testing and verification (check*, test*, valgrind-wireshark, cppcheck, etc.)
- generator tools (lemon, idl, make-*, ncp2222, etc)
- misc developer utils (backport-rev, gen-bugnote, svnadd, win-setup*, etc)
