mcview man page

mcview man page attached (mostly for Debian package of mc I'm
polishing up - Debian policy strongly recommends manpage for every
binary). It is based mainly on mcedit(1). 

Andrew could you check it and put this into cvs if it's good?

screen modes, and able to send mouse escape sequences).
