Detect future Freedoom IWADs
Some IWADs (e.g, Freedoom) are updated quite frequently so recognizing only specific versions of them will necessitate constantly adding new detection rules to
databundles.dei manually. Instead, Doomsday should be able to detect the IWAD based on file name, etc. and choose a version number based on associated metadata (e.g, file modification time).

Changing this issue to be specific to Freedoom.
Added a generic detection rule for the Freedoom IWADs so that Doomsday will detect future versions without assigning a specific version number to them.
