Initial import of snow-20060213 into the Packages Collection.

	Whitespace steganography	 	    	  	      	    	   
	The program snow is used to conceal messages in ASCII text by      	    
	appending whitespace to the end of lines.  Because spaces and tabs are    
	generally not visible in text viewers, the message is effectively 
	hidden from casual observers.  And if the built-in encryption is used,	  
	the message cannot be read even if it is detected.  	 		

	What's in a name?

	snow exploits the steganographic nature of whitespace.  Locating
	trailing whitespace in text is like finding a polar bear in a
	snowstorm (which, by the way, explains the logo).  And it uses the ICE
	encryption algorithm, so the name is thematically consistent.
