BSDstats v3.0 - The Security Rewrite

Over the past few days, I've been working with Paul Schmehl and Matthew 
Seaman to come up with a more "security sensitive" version of BSDstats ... 
one that reduces the amount of "sensitive information" stored in the 
database down to ... zero.  No IPs, no hostnames ...

This new version also reduces the number of 'network fetches' down to 4 
for the first run, and 3 for subsequent runs, so it runs a bit faster, and 
talks across the network less.

And, finally, this one has its own domain for check in server ...

None of the pre-v3.x clients can talk to the v3.x server, since the DB 
format has totally changed, so everyone needs to grab the latest version 
and run it so that we can re-sync the database properly ...

>From now forward, the stats will be viewable from:
