Currently, it can be hard to spot your own nick among all others in large channels when other users have the same color as you. An option to make your own nick (only the nick, not the message) bold/italic/underlined would help separate it from the rest and make it easier to see your own posts.

Implemented new message builder API

Implemented a new message builder API which allows to create messages with
a much nicer API and using less code.

The new API generates more distinct nick-colors by using a color combination
consisting of colored tags (<>) and colored nick name. (closes: #388)
The own nick is now bold to make it more distinct from other nick names.
(closes: #419)

Refactored Engine-IRC and Engine-Twitter to make use of the new API.

Imported MIT/X11 licensed CRC32 implementation for stable hashcodes needed for
the unique nick-colors feature. (closes: #387)
