    Fast text.dat string references, more localization support via JS and @-codes · 69bc9855

    sbbs_t::mnemonics() now supports @-codes immediately following the tilde
    (e.g. ~@Yes@) to use the first character of a dynamically-replaced
    (e.g. localized/translated) text string as a command key.
    Fixed issue in sbbs_t::mnemonics if multiple @-codes were specified in the
    string, but no space characters (just noticed this bug while reviewing).
    Created: sbbs_t::expand_atcodes() - used by sbbs_t::mnemonics(), exposed in
    JS as bbs.expand_atcodes().
    bbs.text and system.text now have properties: each text string ID is the
    property name and the text index number (1-based) is the property value -
    enabling fast text string lookup without load/require text.js
    Constified sbbs_t::atcode() and attrstr() - not too painful
    Deprecated YNQP text.dat string in favor of (the first character of)
      "Yes" and "No" text strings and new strings: "Quit", and "PasswordChar"
    Other text.dat changes: ListKey->List, AllKey->Unused853
    More new text.dat strings: Which, Next, Previous, Language, LANG
    Deprecate the "AllKey" text string
    Create/use sbbs_t::all_key() - first character of "All" text string
    New JS console properties that present common (possibly localized) command
    keys: yes_key, no_key, quit_key, all_key, list_key, next_key, prev_key
