add backspace key binding to refreshabraille18 #6054

I have noticed that the refreshabraille18 does not have any binding for the backspace key, however it does have enter and the arrows. I'm wondering if you could make it possible for say b7+b9, or dot7 chord to be used as a backspace such as on IOS.

Beyond the main code in brailleInput to support uncontracted/contracted input, this includes the following changes:
* The list of braille tables has been moved out of the braille module into a separate brailleTables module. Braille tables are now added with a function rather than directly adding them to the data structure. Aside from being necessary in order to specify and check whether a table is contracted, this also makes the data about tables more extensible in future.
* As the data structure for braille tables has now changed and is no longer ordered, this was a good opportunity to sort the list of tables alphabetically when displaying them to the user.
* Updated to liblouis master shortly after release 3.2.0. The post 3.2.0 commits include some important back-translation fixes for UEB.
* brailleInput is now notified when reverting config or changing config profiles. This is necessary because brailleInput now maintains some state when the input table is changed.
* brailleInput is now initialised before braille at startup. This is because braille depends on brailleInput to get the currently untranslated input.
* Dot7 and dot8 are now universally bound to braille input specific scripts for erase and enter. Any braille display drivers that had bindings for backspace/enter for braille input have been adjusted accordingly.
* In the User Guide, a "Braille" section has been added above "Application Specific Features". The "Braille Control Types and States" section has been moved to a sub-section of this, and a sub-section on Braille Input has been added.
* Added a Unicode braille input table.
