Extensible file matching and filtering

Pronounced COMbine, like the farm implement, combine matches any number of files to a file, set of files, or input stream. When built on a system with Guile available, it uses Guile to provide extensibility for filtering and data transformation. Additional features include hierarchy handling, a Guile module adapted from the Emacs calendar for performing date arithmetic, and outer joins on either or both sides of a match.
