Rename to "mpv"
This changes the name of this project to mpv. Most user-visible mentions of "MPlayer" and "mplayer" are changed to "mpv". The binary name and the default config file location are changed as well. The new default config file location is: ~/.mpv/ Remove etc/mplayer.desktop. Apparently this was for the MPlayer GUI, which has been removed from mplayer2 ages ago. We don't have a logo, and the MS Windows resource files sort-of require one, so leave etc/mplayer.ico/.xpm as-is. Remove the debian and rpm packaging scripts. These contained outdated dependencies and likely were more harmful than useful. (Patches which add working and well-tested packaging are welcome.)

One very useful feature of talloc is fast tracking of memory leaks. ("Fast"
as in it doesn't require valgrind.) You can enable it by passing the option
