Consistency: Use /(.)/ as generic pattern for priority in replaceOrPr…

…epend().

Even though Gina's todo.txt syntax reference only mentions uppercase A-Z priorities, this is handled in two different ways in the code. I think the following guideline is useful: For a user-supplied priority (in the listpri and pri commands), use a strict check for A-Z. In general list and edit operations that need to be aware of the optional priority at the beginning of a task, use the general /^(.) / regexp. This allows addons to use different priority-like markers (e.g. "(-) no do"), have them ignored as priorities, but still maintained by replacements.
