Issue description
Item 87 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 20:12:11

In the equip-screen, when selecting a weapon, it would be useful to highlight the attributes of the soldier that are important to this weapon:

E.g.: Flamethrower --> Heavy Weapons, RocketLaucher --> Explosives + Accuracy etc.

Maybe also color-code this highlight, e.g. value<40: red value<70: yellow otherwise green

This would make it easier to make sensible decisions about choosing who gets what weapon.

It would also be nice to highlight (one item each of) matching ammo when holding a weapon with the mouse, as well as highlighting the matching weapons when holding some ammo.

In the equipment-screen, auto-switching to "object-info" when holding an object and back to actor-info after dropping it would be useful.
