[MP] Bindings for group chat
JHeXen has no control menu options for changing the chat to x mp player button's.
Minor commands, but JDoom and JHeretic both have them, suggesting this is an oversight.

Not a bug. Don't forget that in Hexen, there are eight player colours/teams thats a lot of keys to lose.
Personally, I've always thought the way this is implemented could have been better. In general, you want to do one of three things when chatting:
1) Send message to everyone.
2) Send message to friendlies.
3) Send message to enemies.
I think it would make sense if we implemented the friend/enemy chatting, picking the destination according to game mode automatically. Then remove the current default bindings in the control menu for chatting to player/team N, as these can very easily be handled by adding new bindings should the user want/need it.
