Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator ferventcoder on 3/30/2016.

ConEmu is a beast to configure with reasonable defaults.

It is hands down the best terminal Windows has to offer, but its configuration
abilities are overwhelming. It also has a rather peculiar set of defaults, that
can make keyboard usage quite odd.

This pkg removes the pain.

- Use of SourceCodePro terminal font
- One admin PowerShell tab, one non-admin PowerShell tab, one Git Bash tab
- Uses Chris Kempson's base16 color scheme for hackers
- Uses long console output buffer height to ensure capturing all terminal output
from long running scripts
- Smaller window chrome to save on screen real estate
- Auto-updates enabled
- Support for Ruby ANSI escape sequences through ConEmuHk
- Block cursor
- A simplified status bar
- Sane key bindings that are consistent with other applications, for instance
- Windows + # are not hijacked, and Alt-1 through Alt-0 can switch tabs
- Ctrl-Tab cycles all tabs and current tab is always previewd
- Ctrl-W / Ctrl-F4 closes a tab
- Alt-Space shows ConEmu System menu
- Ctrl-T / Ctrl-N / Ctrl-Shift-N to create new tabs (mimicking Chrome)
- Ctrl-Shift-P to show tab context menu (mimicking Sublime)
- F11 full screen
- Ctrl-V pastes entire clipboard without prompting
- Full mouse and keyboard selection support
- Dim window on inactive

I'm sure there are a couple of other minor tweaks that were dialed in as well.

C:\> choco install ethanbrown.conemuconfig
