[PATCH] Add about-formatting filter for org-mode.

The second patch adds a regex to the filter replacing links to binary
blobs in org files.  I've included it as a separate patch because I'm
not sure if it is considered desirable here.

You can see it in action here[0] and here[1], for each repo the .org
file is in the repository along with the screenshot.

Sometimes repositories on Github have a screenshot checked in and linked
to from the about page.  If there is such a link found in the org file,
replace it with the path to the resource being hosted by cgit.

Org image links look like this: [[./something.png]]

This regex will find matches and replace the "./" with a URL constructed

Thanks for your work on cgit.

Kind regards,
