release.py: Add details to email announcements.

* tools/dist/templates/rc-announce-ann.ezt,

    Say "This is a feature/security/bugfix release"
    and "Subversion is an open-source version control system" [quoted
    from our homepage] to make the announcements self-contained for
    readers of announce@apache.org and other aggregators.

* tools/dist/release.py
  (...): Pass two new parameters, 'security' and 'dot-zero', to the ezt
    templates.  ***NOT YET WRITTEN***
