this morning I noticed I forgot to add the iface.[ch] files to the CVS
This is now fixed. (Though it may take a few hours before the sync from
CF's developer CVS to public CVS)

In addition to that I changed lcdproc a bit so that
- lcdproc still works when the default config file (if not specified on
the command line) is absent.
This restores the 0.5.0 behaviour
- non-option arguments on the command line are honored after reading
a config file.
This went missing completely with the introduction of config files.
- non-option-arguments can be negated using ! as a prefix.

So now lcdproc should behave as one naturally expects:
- basic configuration based on config file
(or on hard coded defaulrts if none was speciofied and
no default config file exists)
- further configuration on the command line that overrides the previous

Hope you like it
