Scripts manager

A new scripts manager has been added, the plugin is called "script" and provides the /script command.

This plugin will replace two scripts: weeget.py (the current scripts manager) and script.pl (providing a /script command to load/unload/reload scripts for any language).

The new /script command is similar to command /weeget with some minor differences (see /help script for more info).

The plugin provides a buffer with list of scripts in repository, which makes installation or removal of scripts very fast: just press alt+i on this buffer, and the script is installed! Not satisfied with the script? Key alt+r and the script is gone!

The buffer allows you to search string in scripts (description, tags, ...) and to sort scripts with many keys. Columns displayed can be fully customized (order, columns displayed), as well as colors.

For list of options, just do: /set script.*

Script plugin: list of scripts

Shorten URLs with own HTTP server

Don't panic with long URLs and don't give your private URLs any more to shortening services!
A new script urlserver.py has been added. This script shortens URLs displayed and serve them using own HTTP server, which can be used to display a list of all URLs as well.

Many options are available to customize shortening of URLs, display in WeeChat and HTML page (see /help urlserver and /set plugins.var.python.urlserver.*).

The URLs are saved into ~/.weechat/urlserver_list.txt when script is unloaded, so that URLs are persistent when you restart WeeChat.

Data for callbacks in script API

Major changes were done in script API: data string was added to all callbacks. C plugin API is already ok (there is data pointer for callbacks).
Therefore, all scripts for development version are incompatible with this new version. All official scripts have been updated on plugins page.

This data string must be added after each callback function in arguments of functions. For example in python :

weechat.hook_command("go", "Quick jump to buffers", "", "", "", "go_cmd")
(...)
def go_cmd(buffer, args):

becomes:

weechat.hook_command("go", "Quick jump to buffers", "", "", "", "go_cmd", "")
(...)
def go_cmd(data, buffer, args):
