Picking up HTML::Formatter maintenance

I've volunteered to pick up maintenance of the HTML-Format module, which has been lacking love recently (last update 2004).

Initial intention is to do maintenance on it - its currently causing warnings about UNIVERSAL::Can on recent versions of perl and there are a number of RT tickets for it.

I am converting it to use Dist::Zilla for release management (although my CPAN volume does not really justify this, the fact that it manages the bits I would otherwise forget does!). Source - including imported versions of all the previous tar files I could find on backpan, is now in git on github.

A trial release has gone out, although I intend to further work before pushing out the next proper release - specifically improving the documentation and tests.
