Cleaning Up the Cruft #2 Classes

I feel inspired so y'all get a two-fer today.

The second part of my cruft patrol was much easier than I expected. I had expected to angst over the classes but I found to my pleasure, it was easier to delete them then it was to put them in the first place.
I did have a few troubles, 1st with the the pseudo "tech" classes like artificer and gun mage. After some thought I decided why not? I also was not sure about some of the "at will" classes but I decided to nix those and last, the Totem Warrior. I nearly kept that but in the end , it went away.

Psionics got a major change. All of the Psi classes except the Soul Knife which got altered a bit were removed and replaced with the excellent Psychic class from Green Ronin's Psychic's Handbook.

During this rebuild

Last as a general thing, I like non spell using classes so most of those stayed ...
