Added LuaPlayer::request_translation().
What is the purpose of this? I don't suppose one can save the string to a translated locale file so it can be shared with other players, so... huh?

It can be used to search if a string is included in a translation for a player; for example if you have a set of items to search through you can loop over them and get the locale string in a string form, you can then test if that string contains a user entered string. You can read more on this thread.

Oh, I see. It doesn't ask the player for a translation, it gets the translation as it would be displayed to the player. That makes sense :)

Just tested this out on my IR run. I was playing prior to this patch with the burner leech mod. Part of the behavior of that mod was that burners would also transfer fuel from one entity to another (i.e. a burner inserter would move coal from the fuel slot of one stone furnace to another). I noticed that when using this tag, that behavior doesn't happen any more. Is that intended?

One step closer to stable, well done :)
Rich text for save games, is a great QoL improvement.

Sadly, the description reads like it is really intended to only enable inserters feeding from fuel inventories at their pickup location. So still no elegant inserter-driven early double-colon steel smelting in vanilla - neither with burner nor electric inserters.
The flag fixes one issue of burner inserters though. So there is a chance that a followup for enabling fuel transfer from pickup fuel inventory to drop fuel inventory would make the current version of inserter fuel leech obsolete.
And if we get really lucky, there could even be a flag enabling ingredient leeching from pickup ingredient or result inventory to drop ingredient inventory...

All it did for me was give me this jacked up UI which is a pain in the ass. When I tried to restore back, now I get an error. Ah, well. Been meaning to spend some money on Kerbal anyway.
