This file contains the xml and updated rgb for an APR button on the
 autopilot.  It can be used to lock on to the glide slope on an
 ILS aproach.
  As it stands now the NAV locks onto the NAV1 localizer and the APR locks
  on to the NAV1 GS (if it exists).  I think (and I'm not quite sure) that on a
  real autopilot (like the KAP-140) the NAV button will lock on to VOR signals

   having a manual and knowing exactly how this should work, and making further
    changes to the autopilot code, this slight modification will make it easier to

Added keybindings for selecting a current engine, for changing magneto
position, and for engaging the starter.  Here's how it works:

1. To select an engine, use '!' (shift-1) for engine 1, '@' (shift-2)
   for engine 2, '#' (shift-3) for engine 3, '$' (shift-4) for engine
   4, or '~' to select all engines.  These bindings set the bool
   properties /sim/input/selected/engine[0],
   /sim/input/selected/engine[1], etc.

2. To decrease the magneto for the selected engine(s), use '{'.

3. To increase the magneto for the selected engine(s), use '}'.

4. To engage the starter for the selected engine(s), use SPACE.

Eventually, I'll extend this so that the throttle uses the selected
engine as well, and will perhaps even support engine selection in the
joystick bindings.  Right now, only engine 1 (engines[0]) is selected
by default.
