Adam Spiers b6ee2d10d6 cli.t: test with the right Perl executable
t/cli.t calls scripts which run with the first perl found in the
user's PATH (usually the system perl), not with the perl used for the
build, as reported here:

Thanks to Slaven Rezic for spotting this and reporting it!

Adam Spiers 311c2d139e Improve the history of individual contributions and repositories
The source code has been through a rather complicated journey, and
it's occasionally useful to understand this history from CVS to a
private Subversion repository to its current location in git.  So
document this more thoroughly, and ensure that everyone involved
is in the THANKS file.

Adam Spiers d0f3e5458f Correctly handle empty STOW_DIR (#5, #6)
In shell, a variable is often considered unset even if it is
set to the empty string.  In other words,

  STOW_DIR= stow [args]

is an idiomatic alternative to writing:

  unset STOW_DIR
  stow [args]

and it also has the advantage of temporarily "unsetting" STOW_DIR
for a single command.

Therefore we should treat STOW_DIR being set to the empty string
as equivalent to it not being set at all.

Thanks to Cuong Manh Le for highlighting this issue!

Adam Spiers 8357dca645 Remove "There are no outstanding operations to perform" warning.
This is more in keeping with the UNIX convention of no output on success,
and is also the way Stow v1.x behaved.  Thanks to Adam Sampson for the suggestion.
