Subject: Linux 2.2.20-ow2, NordU2002 presentation slides on Owl

Both Owl-current and Owl 0.1-stable have been updated to include this
version of the patch.  (There's no updated Owl-current ISO image yet,
though, but once there is it will have the new patch.)

As promised, I've also released our NordU2002 presentation slides on
Owl, as well as an updated version of the SSH Traffic Analysis slides
(as used at NordU2002).  The URL is:
