The attached patch changes the way the server informs the client about
allocated nations. Currently the server send a bitmask which resticts
the number of nations to 64. The new is to send a list of nation
ids. Since this is dynamical at the network level the new solution
will even use less bandwidth than the current one for up to 4
allocated nations. This allows up to 64k nations (hello and welcome
star trek nations).

Since this change is a bit intruding I would not like to add backward
compatible code and make this capability mandatory. Backward
compatible code would be a mess since also the gui has to be changed.

  (On the statement print "42 monkeys"+"1 snake"): BTW, both perl and Python
  get this wrong. Perl gives 43 and Python gives "42 monkeys1 snake", when 
  the answer is clearly "41 monkeys and 1 fat snake".
