Update required pylint version

This should help a lot of users, since pylint 0.21.1 was quite an old
version…

The tree is "clean" w.r.t. the new pylint version.

Update name of test/htest in doc/devnotes.rst

Improve a bit Haskell library recommended versions

The hinotify library was missing any versions, and finding one that
works with ghc 6.12 (base 4.2.x) was not obvious. The
test-framework-quickcheck2 recommended version didn't actually work
with the test-framework version, so fix that as well....

Move htest/ files under the test/ tree

htest/data becomes test/data/htools (basically reverting commit
8feabc89), and htest/* becomes test/hs/*.

Most changes beside the rename are trivial s/…/…, with the exception
of autotools/run-in-tempdir, which needed some more changes now that...

Rename htools/ to src/

Per offline discussions, this is the first patch of the

The only change outside of the renaming is a bit of simplification in
the .gitignore rules; otherwise, simply s/htools/src/....
