Due to the font used in the default ccHost install,
it is extremely difficult to distinguish between
certain characters in the image key, like l1 O0 2Z,
etc. It took me several attempts to register with
ccHost, and was quite frustrating.

The following patch rewrites GenKey() in a way that
allows specifying exactly which characters to use in
these image keys. I've dropped a bunch of
potentially confusing characters such as oO0 l1I zZ2
g9 B8.
