  flexible HylaFAX typerules framework used by sendfax
* Improved JPEG/JBIG support for Class1 and Class2
* faxq AuditHook for hooking into all faxq events
* STATUSCODE job paramater to complement the STATE and STATUS parameters
  to allow clients to give customized descriptive messages about the
  status of a job.
