1.3.30: Use rfc-editor/datatracker for RFC/I-D bibxml fetching.
(This patch only has an effect on stand_alone: true documents.)

The previous behavior can be reinstated by setting the environment variable KRAMDOWN_USE_TOOLS_SERVER to any value.

This emergency patch became necessary as xml2rfc.tools.ietf.org is currently serving outdated data, as well as missing updates, in some cases for more than a week.  

Unless people see problems with this change, this patch is likely to stay, as the update rates of the “official” sources are much closer to real-time, and this may count a lot in the final hours of the I-D deadline frenzy, which we all cherish.

(If you want to see some of the outdated data, have a look at https://www.ietf.org/archive/id/draft-bormann-cbor-notable-tags-03.html from today, which for instance references http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-cose-rfc8152bis-struct-14.txt, which is 404.  More details at the thread starting at https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/tools-discuss/AxvlPNoeGRTq92J_fIn4iCRN-mI/ .)

Note that this does not replace xml2rfc.tools.ietf.org as bibxml sources for other types of documents.  With the patch in 1.3.29, that part seems to be limping along fine, however.
