My first idea was to have a per-external-program setting to enable input translation, but Deuce suggested it would be better done in input_thread() and after some thought, I agree. Translations are not done in data/file transfer mode, so use the CON_RAW_IN console flag to indicate this condition. So even
JS console.getbyte() will return a translated char unless the console is set raw input mode (this could be surprising behavior for some!).
I considered saving/restoring the console mode when performing a file transfer but will leave that to a time when obviously needed.
This fixes issue #497 in automatic way (no option needed).
