Debris in 1860 and 1867 editions of Leaves

I've revised the XML of the 1860 and 1867 editions of Leaves of Grass to reflect the editorial decision that "Debris" is a cluster of untitled poems rather than a single poem. Besides changing <lg1 type="poem">Debris</lg1> to <lg1 type="cluster">Debris</lg1> and putting <lg2 type="poem"> tags around the individual poems, I've also added <relations> to each poem. In this process, nine new work IDs were created for poems not present in the deathbed and "Debris (Poem)" was removed as a Work.
