Default Apocalypse package & Library class Archive Ship

It turns out, taking the various production packages in High Guard and packaging them together, one can get a good approximation of the "makertech" alluded to in other editions. A few of us on the CotI Discord batted about the conclusions, and came up with this. Submitted for y'all's review.

Notes on things some people are likely to stumble over:
* This is a small factory, not a Star Trek replicator. This is much, much, much slower, and doesn't do atomic conversion or the like. Also, it requires a lot of manual labor.
* This is not von Neumann. While one apocalypse package can create another, it can't (directly) create a second person to crew the new package.
* This does not exist until it is created out of panic and necessity just before the Collapse (somewhat after the Golden Era that Mongoose's books focus on), at which point conditions are far less than optimal for people to start using it, even if many might think they want it.
