[plug] Barcodes

Found Xbar on sunsite thanks.

It actually has an X and a character-display executable.  The X version
needs an extra library I haven't looked for yet.  Output is a variety of
formats including gif and ps.

It fails to produce output from an arbitrary string (invalid input).
Looks like I need to read up on barcode standards.  Unfortunately the
README is in German.
