Default initramfs-tools 0.99 release

Hello everyone,

we just uploaded initramfs-tools release 0.99 "scarpe rotte e pur bisogna andar"
to Debian/unstable on this lovely Friday the 13th.

Users will most notably notice /run usage and xz support.
update-initramfs now has enhanced linux-2.6 hook scripts support,
so it no longer has to invoke bootloaders by itself. The initramfs
building process got enhanced to no longer rely on a symlinking mess.
As a consequence lib search paths can be properly configured.

The interesting question is the release numbering for the upcoming release.
Feel free to voice your preference of 1.0, 100 or 0.100? (:

Big thanks to the various contributions.
