CE-sft-lcg-rm-free released!

A new SAM test is now in production. It does a BDII lookup to check that there is sufficient space on the SE before attempting to run the standard replica management tests. This is good news for sites whose SEs fill up with important experiment data. If the tests finds that there is no free space, then the RM tests don't run. Of course this requires that the information being published into the BDII is correct in the first place. I'll need to check if this system could be abused by sites who publish 0 free space by default, thereby by-passing the RM tests and therefore any failures that could occur. I suppose that GStat already reports sites as being in a WARNING status when they have no free space.
