We should record players' decisions and random events in the savegame to have a better view of what happens on playing.

For example losing due to low nation happiness is a problem for quite some players. Currently we can only suggest them to expand faster and do all missions, but we don't actually see why the happiness drops so fast so we can't balance it.

A full campaign.log like this can be big, so I suggest wiring it on a (default enabled) cvar.

I've been thinking about simply extending "messages" with such an info, MSG_INFO and MSG_DEBUG types are unused. The problem with this is that these messages are visible to the player and if we wanna hide them we need to add checks to the UI node that already does quite some realtime calculations on character heights and widths, I would rather not make that code slower, more complicated.
So decided to make it a separate list.
