    Log Message:
    Start of a timeout handing framework.

    As of this commit, LORD2 keeps track of the last time a key was
    pressed, and a timeout occurs five minutes after that if it's
    waiting for a key. This has issues as the getstr() timeout does
    not behave in this manner.

    However, if the timeout callback style works, getstr() and the other
    dk functions can grow callback support pretty easily, and this seems
    like it may be the best way forward.

    Further, disconnect handling should be tied up in this, and dorkit
    does not have very robust features for this. In most cases, a
    disconnect will be treated the same as a timeout, so the same solution
    should likely be usable by both.

    The biggest challenge is preventing the need for all the code to
    have exceptional condition handling, which can be quite tricky as
    battles can end by running a REF file (For example, the training
    centre). This would mean all code paths reachable via REF calls
    would need to fail nicely in the face of a connection loss/timeout.

    Log Message:
    Deal with the three classes of variables...

    1) ` vars which are always expanded.
    2) & vars which are expanded "sometimes" (generally for display stuff).
    3) "pure" vars which are only expanded when they are the entire string.

    The main change here is in the & var handling... lw() no longer
    expands these, so they can be displayed to the user... they are now
    expanded in the following cases:

    1) Anything that calculates the displayed length. The assumption
    here is that the string will be passed to one of the following
    things.
    2) Bar updates, either @quebar or @saybar
    3) @do addlog
    4) @do write
    5) @moremap
    6) @progname
    7) @show
    8) @writefile

    Write the player record after changing lastmap.

    This allows more @whoison to be more accurate.
    Also, fix a misplaced ) while I'm here.

    Fix bounty and such...

    So it actually looks like the *only* thing that doesn't expand
    & strings is the output code.

    Save time in player.lastsaved every time.

    This allows timing out the battle bit. If the game/BBS crashes
    while you're in battle, you should now only need to wait two times
    the idle timeout (ie: 2 * 5 minutes) before you can get back in.
