Terminal VT100 support, separate shell implementation 2017/01/14, 11:30:08

Happy new year to all of you! :)

I rewrote the terminal driver so that it now uses VT100 for output. With this it is now possible that applications can control their terminal window by sending escaped commands.

This also allowed me to finally separate the shell implementation from the terminal itself (it was basically a "built-in shell" before). The shell is now found in gosh - the Ghost shell. This shell is still work-in-progress but will soon be enriched with various features.

What you see in the screenshot is a little demo - I ported the Duktape JavaScript interpreter and made it run a script. I'm thinking about using this as a replacement for what bash/sh usually do, but this is just an idea for now.
