[PATCH] ui: add new config flag for interface selection

From the problem that Pierre-Yves mentioned, we have resolved 2 issues out of 3:

1) In what section to put this code.

=> RESOLVED: We are going to stick to what I sent in the patch, i.e. ui.interface.XYZ

2) What should the config value be

=>NOT RESOLVED: Augie thinks that we won't have a second curses interface and wants to simplify the option choice accordingly.
Pierre-Yves disagrees and prefers to keep a more complex but more flexible option.
I am personally fine with any choice, but I prefer Pierre-Yves' idea as it is more extensible, let's be optimistic, we could have another curses interface one day!

3) What happen when the specified value is unknown.

=> RESOLVED: Nobody feels strongly about one side or the other, so let's go with a warning.
Also I don't expect automation to play with the value of these config options, it wouldn't be very wise to try to select hunk programmatically with crecord.

I am sending a new patch following what I said above and Pierre-Yves' proposal for 2.
Let's move the discussion there.
