Allow choice of case sensitivity and or not to use regular expressions in user dictionary entries #39

Currently user dictionaries force users to create and edit entries as regular expressions. Many users just want to add a simple string replacement, and probably also make it case-sensitive.
The Dictionary Entry dialog (used for adding and editing) should contain two checkboxes (case sensitive, and regular expression). And the userDicthandler code must be changed to support these new features. This change would make NVDA user dictionaries much easier to use, and much like other screen readers' dictionary support. Eventually it may be an idea to rename user dictionaries to speech dictionaries, as I assume this system probably wouldn't be used for braille. Plus, a few users have asked just exactly what user dictionaries are (the name is a little confusing to some).

implemented in svn r1847. However user dictionaries have not been named to speech dictionaries yet.
