#24 Disable Colonize Button If Colony Ship Moving


Currently, if a colony ship is in a system in which
there are planets that can be colonized, the buttons
next to the planets, labelled "colonize" are always
visible. If a colony ship has been ordered to move to
another system, however, then this buttons should
perhaps not be visible, or should give a warning
message before expending the ship. (Rationale: If the
ship has been ordered to move, it was probably meant to
be used elsewhere, not here, and the player forgot
this.) Some sort of "are you sure?" dialog would also
be a good idea for this button, as currently, there is
no recourse or warning if it is accidentally pressed.

    I will look into this. People should also be able to cancel a
    given colonize order.

    Done. Now we first look for a colony ship which isn't about
    leaving the system, if we only find a colony ship which
    will/would leave the system, a message box popups and ask
    the player if he want to take that ship.
