Updating Configuration Files for the development version of EMC2

There are incompatible changes to the emc2 configuration file format between version 2.0.x and the development version, which will be known as EMC 2.1. They are described on the wiki. The attached script is an attempt to make conversion from 2.0 to 2.1 automatic. It is experimental, but because it works on a copy of your configuration files it should be safe to use. You are still encouraged to make a backup of your configuration files before running it, though.

The output is written in ~/emc2.1/configs, though that directory isn't yet shown in the configuration picker.
