Small GUI improvement

Description

The GUI so far is cool.

I, as a new user, would however like to have a list in the GUI which tells me which games currently are supported.

I would not mind if these games are supported "only" 90%, i just think that this list should be presented in the GUI too. Yes, I could check wiki, or google for it, but I think that an in-GUI support would be better. More user friendly in my opinion.

I agree that maybe not every user would need or want this, but then again I dont need the about button neither ;)

Here is my idea to implement this:

1) Add a new slot: "Supported Games"
if this button-slot is pressed, a widget pops up and lists which games are supported (and optionally, have a short description appear in a box on this widget like, zacmc cracken appeared first 1982 and is blablabla)

or

2) if you would not want to add a new GUI button, then how about adding this to the about button. Right now if i click on the about button, I get a scrolling widget. Why not have either a link to a "show supported game" on t his, or alternatively scroll the list of supported games on this scrolling list as well?

Ah, what I also meant to option
2), you could make a link to some wiki etc.. :)
and if a user clicks with his mouse cursor on it,
firefox (or just $BROWSER) tries to open this URL in a new tab

A list of all supported games, and their known issues are in the README file, which is included with all builds of ScummVM.
