[bf1942] In Game Admin Commands need overhaul

I'm a serveradmin for an ISP and there is no need for dice to make
something ... well ... they already made. As Andreas said, since 1.31
aliases are common, so learn how to use them (its vm 10 now instead of
game.votemap 10 etc, you can write your own). What DOES need to be
redone about the ingame admin commands is the use of the underscore or
spaces. It is not possible to change ingame to a map with more than one
word; eg admin.execremotecommand "admin.changelevel Iwo_Jima" or
admin.execremotecommand "admin.changelevel Iwo Jima" wont work, while
using the remote console command admin.changelevel Iwo_Jima will. It
should be possible to switch to such maps ingame though; as it should be
possible to use admin.execremotecommand "game.sayall look mommy I can
use spaces". There is a solution to game.sayall now however although not
an elegant one : "game.sayall look€mommy€I€can€use€spaces".

Sorry if I went too off-topic with this one, but the first part is in
response to mr. richards' question, and the second one is (although
maybe not only linuxrelated) an issue.

This is more to Andreas Fredriksson

But is it possible to get some good, short and easy to remember admin
commands put into the server? Instead of the very long ones currently

Or at least allow people to bind keys to do it automatically.

I am basically passing this on from several clans who really hate the in
game admin current setup.
