      Add Configure / Aliases / Accumulate toggle to enable parsing even with
      all Alias() trace logs disabled.

      Save captured Possible and Unused-0 Aliases across restart and support
      Clear options.

      Complete Configure / Aliases / ... menu option functionality (New,
      Enable/Disable, Make Known, Remove) See
      http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/menu:configure-aliases for an idea of what
      these are supposed to do.

      Show both Non-alias used hop count and Simplistic used hop count in the
      Digi/IGate column of the packet scroller. See PS discussion for the
      difference.

      PS. So what does this have to do with RFPort and arbitrary IGating?
      APRSISCE/32 has been using a simplistic method of counting "used hops"
      to determine "local". By supporting user detection and definition of
      path aliases that are being used, I can more accurately count "used"
      hops, presuming of course that all of the local digipeaters are
      inserting callsigns. Used hop counting is futile in a UIFLOOD (SSn-N)
      environment.

      Consider the following paths:

      DIGI1*,WIDE1*,DIGI2*,WIDE2-1 - Simplistic: 3, WIDE alias: 2
      DIGI1*,WIDE1*,DIGI2*,WIDE2* - Simplistic: 4, WIDE alias: 2

      DIGI1*,WIDE1*,DIGI2*,DIGI3*,WIDE2* - Simplistic: 5, WIDE alias: 3

      DIGI1*,WIDE1*,DIGI2*,DIGI3*,WIDE2 - DIGI3 is possibly busted - Will show
      in Unused-0

      CFL2-2 - Simplistic: 0, CFL alias: 0
      DIGI1*,CFL2-1 - Simplistic: 1, CFL alias: 1
      DIGI1*,DIGI2*,CFL2* - Simplistic: 3 CFL alias:2 - But with UIFLOOD it
      won't happen
      DIGI2*,CFL2* - Simplistic: 2, CFL alias: 1 - THIS is with CFL as a
      UIFLOOD alias
