added an illustrating diagram to inverse limit, just so that one sees at one glance what the variance of the arrows is, since following through the “directed/codirected”-terminology and entries – if one really is in need of the $\mathbb{Z}_2$-orientation – can be a bit of a pain.

I have added another example (the dyadic solenoid) and have created an entry on solenoids.

The discussion is around here somewhere, but we’d decided to use inverse limit (and direct limit) essentially as disambiguation pages, since sometimes the mean codirected limit (and directed colimit) while sometimes they mean limit (and colimit) in general. So I’m moving the new material to directed limit.

I thought it was useful at inverse limit because people may see that in the literature and may want to quickyl see what it means. Let’s keep it there and duplicate it at directed limit.

I tried to make it more clear at inverse limit that directed limit (or another page) has what one really needs.
