Let's not change the name.

Go ahead and use the AmberTools12.pdf file that is in the master branch...I

only refers to post-Amber12 changes, but I don't think that will cause
problems. [I fixed the "--" problem in the documentation.]

We'll just have Lulu a bit out of sync...very few people seem to want the
bound versions anyway.
