mvto 1.14

We've been using vos release -f to release AFS volumes since time immemorial. This forces a full release and a full copy of the volume to each replication site, and we started doing it originally to work around some long-forgotten bug in Transarc AFS. The rest of the world doesn't do this, and I tested omitting the -f successfully, so I've modified mvto to stop passing the -f flag, allowing incremental releases. It makes everything quite a bit faster.

I also fixed a bug in the handling of moving a RW site without an accompanying replica when using the -s flag and cleaned up a few other checks and limitations at the same time.

You can get the latest version from the mvto distribution page.
