Proofgold Core 0.2.8rc1

I added code to ltcrpc to try to use sockets to directly communicate with litecoin instead of communicating via curl. It is much faster, so I think it's worth trying to push this new version out relatively quickly. Since it has not been thoroughly tested, it makes sense to give access to a "release candidate" first and then make the actual release in a couple of weeks:

In the release message for 0.2.7 I noted that a flush call sending messages to a peer sometimes causes the process to die. In 0.2.8rc1 I try to get around this by handling the sigpipe signal. When the sigpipe signal is called, Proofgold now disconnects from all peers. The hope is that it will continue to run normally afterwards and (over time) reconnect to peers. It isn't clear if this is a good solution, but it at least seems to die less often.

Feedback is welcome.
