[Bf-committers] carve boolean blender

I've started looking at the bmesh branch and seeing what it takes to add 
carve to it. Good news is the same old code is still there so it can 
just plug in; bad news is the old boolean modifier doesn't work anyway.  
So my plain is to look at getting boolean working again, unless someone 
else is doing it.

BTW, I assume the bmesh branch right now is a work-in-progress.  It took 
a bit of work to get it to compile under linux; some complaints about 
wrong procedure prototypes due to missing includes, some flat-out 
complaints about missing bmesh.h (the include path not added to 
SConstruct files), and some wrong prototypes or other typos.  If that's 
not the case, I can let someone (Joseph?) know what I had to do to fix 
it; otherwise I can also help out with some commits to that branch to 
help move the integration/merge.  I have free time now :-)
