    Added Files:

    Modified Files:

    Log Message:
    Start of localization support for JS modules/shells/etc.

    Similar to GNU gettext(), by loading gettext.js and enclosing all user-visible strings in gettext(), a script can get easy/easier support for non-default (i.e. US-English) locales by loading translated strings from the [JS] section of ctrl/text.<locale>.ini (if it exists), or customized strings from the [JS] section of ctrl/text.ini (if it exists).

    Results are cached for fast subsequent uses of the same string.

    What's *not* supported is different translations (e.g. colorization or whatever) for the same string used in a different scripts. That could be
    added (e.g. use a different section name for script-specific translations), pretty easily, if desired.
