Enhanced user roles

The latest tested CCS5 release delivers improved user modes among other new features.
Firstly, the user mode is now persistent and saved in settings. Also when you switch to another mode, it is propagated directly to other running applications like the HIST browsers, so they will adjust their appearance immediately.
In addition, a new mode "Guest" can be chosen in ConfigureCCS. Users in this mode cannot switch to another mode and have all other capabilities disabled too. A new test RolePrivTest.tcl in the CCS Self Test pack demonstrates all capabilities available for configuration.
To avoid an accidental switching to a mode with canChangeMode = false thereby trapping yourself, there is now a pop-up warning against this transition.
