Impose size limits as per Livejournal API docs.

This patchset makes sure you don't exceed the limits on size that
Livejournal imposes on entries.

It also fixes a quick little bug to do with abbrevs... I kinda forgot
to turn them on.

* lj.el (lj-check-limits): New.  Livejournals puts limits on the
length of posts and the headers etc.  This ensures you don't
exceed them.

* lj.el (lj-post): Use it.

* lj.el (lj-mode): Turn on abbrev-mode.

* lj.el (lj-version): Bump.

New signature feature and self-promotion.

This patchset brings some shameless self-promotion by adding a byline to
the bottom of a post: "Posted via: SXEmacs/LJ (version string)".  It is in
a fairly small font and out of the way so should be reasonably

     * lj.el (lj-self-promote): New.  When non-nil tell the world that
     you use sexy software.

     of a post.

     * lj.el (lj-generate-new-buffer): Insert the signature if it is set.

     * lj.el (lj-version): Bump.
