URL lookup with dsv; kicad-libs catalogs now have title pages

Some news from the infrastructure side:
- dsv now has an option -u that prints the URL of the data sheet
This is useful for example when somebody else asks for a link to
the data sheet.
Note that the dsv databases have to be rebuilt to use this feature.
E.g., in projects having a "make dsv" target, you'd just run this.
The rebuild will update the local dsv-* files but doesn't need
network access (unless URLs have been added/changed to/in the
bookshelf file(s) after the last update).
If "dsv -u" is run on an old database, it will simply detect the
problem and complain. All other uses of dsv don't care whether the
database is old or new.
- the component/symbol and module/footprint catalogs now have title
pages with useful information like when the catalog was generated
and where to find the files for KiCad or fped.
Here are the catalogs:
- items in our libraries:
223 components/symbols from 82 .lib files
331 modules/footprints from 57 .fpd files
