Shannon-Entropy (0.04)

It's not very clear what this calculates, since it isn't documented, and the module is written almost as obfuscated Perl, and the output results of the module given in the documentation don't really make sense. There is not really any such thing as the Shannon entropy of a string, unless one defines the probabilities of the alphabet beforehand, which this doesn't do.
