Updating the volunteer page project table

Besides updating the activity levels we list this includes the following
changes...

* Combining Torbutton and TorLauncher into TorBrowser. TorButton no longer
exists on its own, and our link to TorLauncher no longer worked. Pointing to
TorButton's codebase since that's getting most activity, and the TorBrowser
repo says it's for "old, pre 3.x".

* Dropping Orchid again. It hasn't received any commits since November 2013
(a full year) - if the project indeed is still active somewhere then we
need an updated link.

* Dropped chiiph from Vidalia. He's been gone for a long time now, and we
should be upfront that we don't have a maintainer. Adjusted maintainers
elsewhere where appropriate to match who's actually working on things.

* Dropping Torouter as it's been inactive since 2011 and isn't used in
practice. There's lots of neat directions this space can go, but presently
this codebase isn't it.

* Listing the new maintainer of torsocks.
