0005142: provide a menu option to publish a space and a catalog of currently active published spaces
For ad-hoc space publishing and discovery, there should be a simple menu item to publish a space and some meta-information about that space. In addition, we ought to have a catalog of public spaces both in-world and at a web site.

see http://earth.software.umn.edu/cgi-bin/KnownWorlds [^] for a list of known sites.

the MenuUI-etw.83 changeset adds menu options for publishing and browsing space catalogs to the
simpledemo and sailing worlds.

When a space is published, it announces itself to the catalog service at earth.software.umn.edu,
and tells this service periodically that it is still alive. The catalog can be queried with via
the web page or from the "View Known Worlds" option in the spaces menu.
