Guten morgen lovely people of the Internet. This June my grandpa passed away
so spent quite a bit of time with family. Tor stuff didn't get much attention,
but I did revise a couple small parts of Nyx.

Nyx Installer and Descriptor Dialog Rewrite

This month I rewrote the installer of Nyx and its descriptor dialog. As
usual this was mostly about cleaning and stabilizing the codebase. Only
functional changes were...

 * Our setup.py now supports --man-page and --sample-path arguments for
   customizing resource locations.

 * Test coverage for installation.

 * Installing and our tests are now python3 compatible. Sadly no, this doesn't
   mean Nyx runs under python3 just yet but it's a step in that direction.

 * The descriptor dialog now shows microdescriptors (this part of the codebase
   predated them).

Cheers! -Damian
