Adds functionality for instant messaging through websockets.

This plugin is a proof of concept with surprising results, but it is in standby mode now. It is underdocumented and not covered by any tests. We have abandoned our dream of writing an instant messenger client in Lino. We rather hope that sooner or later some free IM client will emerge, and that Lino would rather integrate with it than replace it.
