Some features had to be dropped/rewritten, because it was not possible to
solve the licensing issue with wahnfred (not appearing on IRC to said times;
ignoring my emails; coming up with false claims; emails were "lost"; etc. etc.).

So I decided it's the best to remove his features that were not given out
formerly (in source form).

Rewritten features:
- Plugin API
- Console History
- indentfrags
- Several other things (including internal used functions)

Removed features (not my source code):
- Plugins: movieencoder, soundinput and mpdclient
- '/consearch'
- '/checkregex' (wanted to get rid of pcre)
- chatsounds
- name completion / highlighting
- \fz and \fb color codes
- Center Console (May be rewritten if there's enough interest)
- '/contimecolor' + '/conshowtime'
- '/colornames' + '/highlightteamkillmsg' (TKs are already highlighted with \f6)

Deprecated commands:
- addplugin(s) (new name is loadplugin(s))
- delplugins(s) (new name is unloadplugin(s))
- listplugins (new name is listloadedplugins)
