User documentation for FGModule

FGModule is a reference counting smart pointer to an object of type FGModuleBase. Its value represents a Finitely Generated Module. Most modules in CoCoALib will probably actually be FGModules.

Let v be a ModuleElem belonging to an FGModule. Then we can access the various components of v using a syntax like that for indexing into a std::vector. Thus v[n] gives the n-th component (which will be a RingElem.

FGModule.C is jolly small -- probably some code is missing.
