Added the "<custom-type>" tag, and better requirements for function signatures.sb-0.10.10
Trying to find a non-qualified (without scope information) class, found in a function signature or return type, was a bad idea for it makes the parsing awfully slow when dealing with huge libraries. If the user writes a type in short form in a function signature (e.g. "SomeClass", instead of "Namespace::SomeClass"), APIExtractor will exit with a message indicating the error and the possible candidates for the type. The "<custom-type>" tag is for types of the target language ("PyObject" in Python, for instance) and will be handled by the generator.
