Revelation 0.4.2 "Tuesday Morning" released

Revelation is a password manager for the GNOME 2 desktop, released under
the GNU GPL license. It stores all your accounts and passwords in a
single, secure place, and gives you access to it through a user-friendly
graphical interface.

Version 0.4.1 accidentaly used an API only available from gtk 2.6.0 and
newer, causing it to crash on older versions. This release no longer
uses that API, so it should work on gtk 2.4.0.

- don't use gtk.Action.set_sensitive() (API from gtk 2.6)
- check for mkdict/packer under /sbin and /usr/sbin in addition to $PATH
