Renamed ActivityPingback to ActivityPush

Did this for a couple of reasons:
  • To avoid confusion with Pingback and all its variants (should have done this a long time ago as per Evan's advise).
  • To see if I can evolve this into a simple and generic way to push activities, to avoid having to use two protocol, one for pushing solicited notification (to subscribers via PubSubHubbub) and one for unsolicited notifications (which is what ActivityPush does currently). This is similar to what does (replaces PubSubHubbub + Salmon), but I want to see if I can do it without an HTTP based protocol and differing a lot of things to the implementations.
