Needs a lot of work

Tesseract in its present form is unusable. It needs to be able to handle formatting correctly, and the source looks like it needs some serious maintenance to sort out 64 bit compatibility issues. It looks like it might be better just to cherry pick the good parts, clean them up, and integrate them with gocr rather than try and make this usable.
