patch for modern binds

In an attempt to make the Odamex experience less hassle and more user friendly, here is a patch to modernize the controls.

	"bind leftshift \"centerview; toggle cl_mouselook\"; "   // modern controls for enabling freelook
	"bind e +use; "                                         // modern control WASD+E
        "bind w +forward; "
	"bind a +moveleft; "
	"bind s +back; "
	"bind d +moveright; "
	"bind r +moveup; "                                      //fly up in water and spectating
	"bind v +movedown; "                                    //fly down in water and spectating
	"bind space +jump; "                                    //now jump instead of use
	"bind tab +showscores; "            //move showscores to tab for modern controls
	"bind enter messagemode; "          // bind chat to enter instead of T
	"bind y messagemode2; "
	"bind \\\\ togglemap; "				// move automap to \ for modern controls
	"bind mwheeldown weapnext; "        //new for modern controls
	"bind mwheelup weapprev;"           //new for modern controls

removed cl_run being on capslock (now unused) and turned cl_run on by default.
m_forward is now default 0

I'm OK for this change, but ONLY with the basic WASD and cl_run keys.
For the messagemode, t and ENTER would be good too. Y is perfect.

The rest wouldn't feel like the vanilla DOOM standards.
