Summary0015622: Add the ability to name ironman save games at the time the campaign is started
DescriptionI like to include additional information into the naming scheme of my save games i.e. things like difficulty, achievements I am going for, exo mix, game version at the time the campaign was started etc.

The ironman save games are always named using a running number which makes identifying specific games a chore - especially if I have more than one ongoing game.

As a related note: The filenames seem to be capped at a fairly low number of characters at the moment. Any chance to bump these a bit?

For 1.013:

* Bumped the max length of a savegame name from 20 characters to 40.

* Now on the start-game screen when you enable Ironman it displays a textbox that (to quote its tooltip):
** Normally the game will name your ironman save "Ironman_1", "Ironman_2", etc, depending on how many ironman saves exist when you start an ironman game. If you'd like you can pick a different prefix. For instance if you enter "WhatCouldGoWrong" it will name your save "WhatCouldGoWrong_1" (unless that was already taken, in which case it would do "WhatCouldGoWrong_2".

Thanks :)
