So pagemaster has a bundled library, FilterUtil, which needs to be separated
to a different package.  This isn't quite as simple as it sounds, as the
FilterUtil package needs to install to a different directory, and requires a
minor code change.

In short, the following needs to happen to pagemaster:
Strip out classes/FilterUtil

And the following needs to happen
FilterUtil must be packaged as a separate class, installing to the
config/classes directory in a Zikula installation.  The source for this is
here: http://code.zikula.org/filterutil/browser/trunk/
This file:
Must be modified, on line 16, to change the path from the current
'includes/pnobjlib/FilterUtil' to 'config/classes'.
The package needs to be submitted for approval.

There is one further change to make.  We need to choose between modifying
the code to pagemaster (in at least one location:
.php lines 303-306) or creating a symlink from
config/classes/modules/pagemaster/classes/FilterUtil to

Sadly, this is more complicated than it at first seems because no one ever
expected FilterUtil to come up against Fedora packaging guidelines :)
