Game Categories Lite v1.5 - Codestation

This plugin is based and uses source code from Game Categories Revised v12 (GCR)
and Game Categories Light v1.3 (GCL), both created by Bubbletune. Compatible with
6.20, 6.3x and 6.60 CFW.

I changed the name of the project (doing a fork in the process) to avoid confusion
with GCL and GCR (the plugin is based heavily in GCL since it doesn't use a
kernel/user approach).

You can configure the folder prefix (use CAT_ for folders or not), showing uncategorized
content and change the category mode in system settings.

If you want to hide certain homebrew/game/dlc from the category listing just create a file
named gclite_filter.txt and add the folders name, one per line (make sure that a newline is
added at the end of the file). Next, put the file in your seplugins folder.

If you want a translation of the visible options then edit the file category_lite_en.txt
and save it using the language code that first you (e.g. "es" for spanish).

Note: you must use UTF-8 encoding for the translation files (without unicode BOM).

Languages supported: "ja", "en", "fr", "es", "de", "it", "nl", "pt", "ru", "ko", "ch1", "ch2"

The source code is also available in

Notes: make sure that this is the 1st plugin listed in vsh.txt

Known issues:
>> Unknown if fixable:
* Change of category in the PSPGo requires a VSH reset.

>> Unrelated to gclite:
* ME doesn't merge the categories with the same name between /ISO and /PSP/GAME.

>> Folder mode limitations/bugs:
* Max categories: 8 (included uncategorized).
* Folder name + homebrew folder name: 30 character, e.g.: My homebrews/AwesomeBigHomebrew
  is valid but My homebrews/AwesomeBigHomebrews isn't (i am not counting the "/").
  Note: the japanese and other non-ascii characters are 2 bytes wide, e.g.: カラフル counts
  as 8 chars.
