Please improve the ingame network chat:

- An own big chat window where you can scroll up and see old messages
- Assign a key to "show console" by standard
- Possibility to click on a player's name and see which level he is playing/switch to his level
-> hovering the nicks shows this information in svn
- an option to customize the time the console is showing up
-> an option was added to keep it visible always

At the moment I can't think of more improvements. Feel free to add others in comments. I myself would be looking forward most to the first one ;-)
This task depends upon

Nice ideas Scor - it would be nice seeing them in a future version in X-Moto & the "Due in version" says 0.5.x so hopefully they will be in X-Moto sometime soon.

The console key is indeed in the options, but changing it does nothing? Also abitility to scroll would be nice. As well as line wrap for long messages.
