This patch makes sure that block.module deals by default only with
regions 0 and 1 as it does now but lets you use block_list with any
region you define. This opens many possibilites. You may do a multi
region module, with your admin UI using the blocks table as storage and
the block_list matcher. Or you may do a sections module using the block
matcher without cluttering the current blocks list.
block_list has a phpdoc: * @param $region main|left|right but I have
not found anything regarding 'main' so I changed this to left|right|all
where all means (left or right). As the current block module would treat
'main' the same as 'right' I doubt it had any usage.
In short: no functionality is harmed, lots of possibilities are opened,
so please commit.
