Updated the index.html with the current status.

You can read what Bookie is <a href="purpose.html">here</a>, but here's the
long and short of it:

<blockquote>
Bookie is an application which keeps all your bookmarks on a
central server so that you can access bookmarks from anywhere on the web.
</blockquote>

<p>I have a server which is currently using a hacked up protocol based on FTP.
I have since learned why no-one uses a protocol from the 1970's if they can
help it: the code is going to go away and be replaced with XML-RPC, which is
both simpler and more intelligent.

<p>Mozilla client is still very rudimentary, but it does do XML-RPC queries.
If you enjoy pain or would like to help, then you can pick up the code from
clients/mozilla/extensions/bookie/resources (I know it's a long URL, I'm
trying to keep it synced with the mozilla codebase) and copy the directories
into your dist/bin/chrome/bookie directory.  I will see if I can wrap it
into an XPInstall script for easier access.  Thanks to Aaron Andersen for
the cool <a href="http://www.xulplanet.com/tutorials/xulapp/">tutorial</a>.

<p>You do have to have the XML-RPC extensions.  Go to your
mozilla/extensions/xml-rpc directory and <code>"nmake -f
makefile.win"</code> should take care of the problem.
