[UI8] UI8ChunkBrowser

The chunk browser is a system recovery and code selection/extraction tool.
You can select/compare chunks of code, fileIn selection in the running system and/or export selection to text in chunk format.

The chunks must be well formed and must contain only s8 source code (it is not a full fileIn reader, because fileIn process can require changes in the reading system while processing to success).

A chunk browser is opened over chunks of code.
It can be opened from a workspace chunks selection or from a browser.
You can also open a chunk browser by droping a chunks file over a workspace:
