[ic] SagePay module update

Sagepay have recently changed the way they handle the protocol. They decided, 
out of the blue and with only telling a small subset of vendors, to reject 
all transactions which contained a comma in the address field. 

This resulted in a major kerfuffle with much grief all round. They have still 
not made any final or definitive announcements as to the allowable character 
set but it seems that they will allow alphanumeric plus commas, periods and 
spaces. I had  previously allowed everything as entered by the customer, on 
the basis that when passed to the Third Man for fraud checking it should be 
original (and that Sagepay would strip out any really dodgy stuff 
themselves). The Third Man's tech support tell me that they can handle input 
that has been reformatted so long as things like 4/25 become 4 25 with a 
space separator. 

An updated version of the Sagepay module is available on 
http://kiwi.zolotek.net which handles things to suit both Sagepay and The 
Third Man. Anyone using this module should update to this version.
