Farewell, sline (scalc/sline split)

Hi everyone!
This is a weird post I'm writing. After giving this some days of 
thought, I've decided to split sline from the scalc codebase and make
a new project out of it. The old sline.c module was bigger than all 
other modules, really needed some internal splitting, and in the end,
I'm sure a line-editing library like that deserves to be a project on
its own.

As scalc is in its 0.3.x version (and next one is probably 0.3.2; I'll
explain later why it's highly unlikely why it won't be 0.4.0), this is
a very, very good moment to make a move like this.

So, sline [1] is now a dependency of scalc, to be developed separately.
This means that if you're packaging scalc in any distribution, you'll
need to package sline as well or it will fail to build.
