support for adb shell terminal

hi there,

adb stands for Android Debug Bridge
and is a protocol to talk to an android phone in "USB debugging" mode
with "adb shell" you can access the android shell and do all sorts of stuff, it's running SElinux. adb does not require a rooted phone.

I would love to see SecureCRT support this protocol, since the terminal that you get from "adb shell" is really poor and buggy.

a user on a popular forum already patched PuTTY to make this work:

the patch is pretty straight-forward.
- Turn off line discipline in settings
- Use RAW mode to connect to localhost:5037
- Enter "0012transport-usb" (without quotes)
- Enter "0006shell:" (without quotes)
