Script in extensions #1949

There are plans to include scripts in extensions (#1403, #1928) and here I'll take note about some ideas that scripts might provide when are installed as extensions (i.e. scripts that run when Aseprite starts):

  • Load/save custom formats, e.g. app.registerFileType{ filetypes="htm,html", onload=function..., onsave=function...} that can call a callback function when a file of the given types are selected
  • Add new inks, e.g. app.registerInk{ id=..., text=... ondraw=function... }
  • Add new tools
  • Add new special editor behaviors (like #1792)

All of this must be really considered because the complexity of scripts and APIs is huge and sometimes it doesn't worth to add such complexity when C++ is preferred.
