Good progress for version 2.0!

Written for Wine Autostart by Hamish McIntyre-Bhatty on 2015-03-07

It's looking good! After some initial troubles with the indicator under wxPython, I'm now powering the indicator with pyGTK, as it is in version 1.0. The rest of the GUI is written in wxPython though, and the two scripts communicate with each other in real time though a pipe. This may sound like a bad idea, but I assure you it runs brilliantly, with very little overhead, and the indicator is much more reliable that way.

So as for the rest of the GUI, the update feature is now almost done, the settings window is almost done, and it also has some new features such as being able to monitor more than one disk, which make Wine Autostart much more productive than it was before!

I haven't done much in the way of the backend, but Wine Autostart's backend is simple, and easy to program, and can mostly be ported from version 1.0, along with many improvements by using python's internal text processing features.

It will be a brilliant, fast, rock-solid release.
