Added 3.0 as target. This is not to say that it should not be made in 2.6, but to make sure that it's being handled in 3.0 (and not forgotten) at latest.

There's various mechanism that looks like it's intended to allow the setting "fogofwar" to be changed mid-game, but it cannot be so changed; notably, the latched variable game.server.fogofwar_old.

"fogofwar" was SSET_RULES_FLEXIBLE on S2_0, but SSET_RULES on S2_1. This was changed in r11576 in 2006, apparently because changing it on the fly was buggy. (Perhaps it was originally changeable so that people could turn FoW on after loading a savegame older than FoW implementation?)

It could be retired to make the vision code a bit simpler.
