Progress on architecture

Did a lot more work on the module DLL / separate app architecture. Basically SquawkBox 3 will have the option to run as both a module DLL or as a separate application. The DLL approach will be the most common usage, with the separate application being used for multi-screen and multi-PC environments. Getting these to both work while minimizing code duplication has been a small challenge.

It's hard to know what is happening in the internal window handling of FS 2K2, but keeping the SquawkBox window drawing, resizing and refreshing correctly is a pretty constant battle.

I'm off camping with the fam all next week (August 5-10), so work will not continue until after that.
