Add a script that routes braille to the focus or cursor position. If braille is tethered to review, call script_navigatorObject_toFocus. If braille is tethered to focus, scroll the braille display so the cursor/caret is shown. In dialog boxes, should probably also scroll the display to the initial position it's in when first encountering a control. That is, if a control plus meta information is too long to fit on the reading unit and the user has scrolled the display, put it back to the original position.
Used for the Alva BC6 bindings as per #5206. May also apply to #5243. Blocking #5206

I had a try at this in t5250. The name of this script is a little difficult, toFocus may be too generic whereas toCursor may be too specific. The same goes for the help text. A final observation is that this script may not play nicely with messages being displayed. The mainBuffer is only updated if it's active, which seems good enough, but I'm no expert. :)

One final note, if #5410 is implemented then the script added by this ticket should likewise scroll to the selection if there is no cursor. It all comes together...
* Alva BC6: Add more key bindings.
* Alva BC6: Add detection of secondary cursor routing buttons, currently unassigned.
These are virtual buttons that are triggered by a long-press of the cursor routing buttons.
For backwards compatibility the original name, routing, is still used for the primary action.
* Alva BC6: Update user documentation.
* Alva BC6: Add two more bindings for controlling the cursor shape and state. Requires #5198.
* Alva BC6: Use the new braille_toFocus script. Requires #5250.
* Improve command names for the BC6 in the user guide.
