Support for simple TODO dependencies

John Wiegley's code for enforcing simple TODO dependencies has
been integrated into Org-mode.  Thanks John!

The structure of Org files (hierarchy and lists) makes it easy to
define TODO dependencies.  A parent TODO task should not be
marked DONE until all subtasks (defined as children tasks) are
marked as DONE.  And sometimes there is a logical sequence to a
number of (sub)tasks, so that one task cannot be acted upon
before all siblings above it are done.  If you customize the
variable `org-enforce-todo-dependencies', Org will block entries
from changing state while they have children that are not DONE.
Furthermore, if an entry has a property `ORDERED', each of its
children will be blocked until all earlier siblings are marked
DONE.  Here is an example:

   * TODO Blocked until (two) is done
   ** DONE one
   ** TODO two

   * Parent
   ** TODO a
   ** TODO b, needs to wait for (a)
   ** TODO c, needs to wait for (a) and (b)

The variable `org-agenda-dim-blocked-tasks' controls how blocked
entries should appear in the agenda, where they can be dimmed or
even made invisible.

Support for shift-selection in Emacs 23

Customize the variable `org-support-shift-select' to use S-cursor
key for selecting text.  Make sure that you carefully read the
docstring of that variable first.
