[PROXYPER] Concept change in D.Net code ?

We have such a user base that uses rc5des.exe that we have the new client
look for rc5des.ini if dnetc.ini does not exist.  You can rename rc5des.ini
if you want to dnetc.ini it will not break anything, you can also have both
rc5des.ini and dnetc.ini and the client will read the dnetc.ini.

This was done to help transition client installs as easily as possible.
Also, you can name the client rc5des.exe if you still want to use it.  Say
you have install scripts of your own or updater scripts that you don't want
to change just yet.

Just a little info.
