Depiq user script update

I've updated the depiq user script. I've solved the problem of disembodied "Read More" links (Slashdot's HTML is FUBAR; the first story on a page is encapsulated in a paragraph except for its "Read More" bits, while subsequent stories on a page do not have the same parent paragraph). Because I'm more confident about the script's capabilities now, I've also changed the include list to handle all slashdot categories. Internally, I removed the closure (closures are not memory-friendly in IE), refactored the code a bit into functions, and added some logging (through the GM_log() functionality, you'll see it either in the Turnabout console in IE or the Javascript console in Firefox) to track the editor that posted each story that was found and to give a total count of how many stories were removed. Finally, I can't seem to keep the filenames straight. I'm sticking with "depiq.user.js" for now. You may have to uninstall the previous script before installing this new one.

As always, the script has been tested with IE/Turnabout and Firefox/Greasemonkey. Since this script is just basic DOM walking and manipulation, it should work in Opera 8 as well, but I've not done any testing there.
