New high score of 246,525 from Brian. Nice!

Also due to a suggestion from Brian: For Space Prisoner version 1.4 (to be released soon), I've added the ability to roll your spaceship about the longitudinal (nose-to-tail) axis.

For now, I have set the new roll controls to be "Q" and "W"... (at least, until I get user-configurable controls going, which is kind of a lot of work)... these new key assignments are negotiable... any suggestions?

By the way: it's simple to prove that every possible three-dimensional orientation can be achieved using just 2 out of the 3 degrees of freedom (roll, pitch, and yaw). Up until now the game had only two to work with (pitch and yaw), but adding the third certainly provides more interesting maneuvering options.
