289 add an entry in each Commander memory that specifies "digital mode" 
  • a blank entry (the default) would mean "no change", preserving current behavior
  • make the width of the Memory panel expand and contract with the width of the Main window, allowing those who want to see this new entry to do so without imposing a wider Main window on those who don't.

393 add support for TS-2000/480 sub-vfo: At startup use the DC command to see which receiver is selected. If the sub is selected as the control receiver, use the DC command to momentarily transfer control (not PTT, just CTRL) to the main, then after reading out the current state, DC control back to the sub. When polling, check DC and if the sub has control, skip the poll since nothing should have changed on the main. When the user tells commander to make a change with the UI, check DC, and if the sub has control, momentarily switch control (not PTT, just CTRL) to the main, send the commands, then switch control back to the sub.
