Shorten URLs with own HTTP server

Don't panic with long URLs and don't give your private URLs any more to shortening services!
A new script urlserver.py has been added. This script shortens URLs displayed and serve them using own HTTP server, which can be used to display a list of all URLs as well.

Many options are available to customize shortening of URLs, display in WeeChat and HTML page (see /help urlserver and /set plugins.var.python.urlserver.*).

The URLs are saved into ~/.weechat/urlserver_list.txt when script is unloaded, so that URLs are persistent when you restart WeeChat.

Change short name of buffers

The short name of buffers can be changed with /buffer set short_name <new_name> command. This might be useful for long channel names displayed in the buffers bar (with script buffers.pl).

For example on channel #weechat:

/buffer set short_name #wee

New value is used immediately, but is not saved in config file. To make it persistent, you have to use script buffer_autoset.py:

/autosetbuffer add irc.freenode.#weechat short_name #wee

Note1: it's not recommended to set short name of query buffers, because WeeChat will change name of buffer when nick changes.

Note2: you should use command /buffer set with precautions, it is not recommended to change other buffer properties if you're not sure about what you do. This could lead to weird behaviour or a crash.

Data for callbacks in script API

Major changes were done in script API: data string was added to all callbacks. C plugin API is already ok (there is data pointer for callbacks).
Therefore, all scripts for development version are incompatible with this new version. All official scripts have been updated on plugins page.

This data string must be added after each callback function in arguments of functions. For example in python :

weechat.hook_command("go", "Quick jump to buffers", "", "", "", "go_cmd")
(...)
def go_cmd(buffer, args):

becomes:

weechat.hook_command("go", "Quick jump to buffers", "", "", "", "go_cmd", "")
(...)
def go_cmd(data, buffer, args):
