The git-remote-daemon now robustly handles loss of signal, with reconnection backoffs. And it detects if the remote ssh server has too old a version of git-annex-shell and the webapp will display a warning message.

Also, made the webapp show a network signal bars icon next to both ssh and xmpp remotes that it's currently connected with. And, updated the webapp's nudging to set up XMPP to now suggest either an XMPP or a ssh remote.

I think that the remotecontrol branch is nearly ready for merging!
