Consistent map scoping in definitions
When setting BIAS light source definitions I can set
the map like this:
Map = "e1m3|doom|iwad|doom1-ultimate"
But when setting map for anything else that format is
not understood, and I need to set it like this:
Map = "E1M3"
This makes it rather difficult to set up DEDs that
should only be active in specific pwads. I think the
DED code should be updated so that:
Map = "e1m3|doom|iwad|doom1-ultimate" formated strings
are understood by all other objects.

- Tags set to Definitions, Scripting
- Subject changed from Make DED Map handleing consistant. to Consistent map scoping in definitions
- Category set to Redesign
- Priority changed from Normal to High
While the example case is a bit outdated, I fully agree a scoping mechanism must be consistent in syntax and semantics.

After that feature is implemented the goal described in https://talk.dengine.net/discussion/2624/is-it-possible-to-distinguish-between-maps-with-the-same-id-mapinfo-ded-package-id/ should be achievable.
