extendedslidertext is difficult to use as implemented

When I went to implement a way to get time remaining on the status bar I noticed that extendedslidertext was intended to provide it. Unfortunately, it is defined as the string "(<time> remaining)". This makes it very difficult to use without a monspaced font. My goal was to end up with a string like "<time> of <time> (<time> remaining)". Since the first part would change length for a variable size font, I couldn't figure out a way to place the extendedslidertext so it moved with the slidertext.

This patch makes extendedslidertext be the full string above. It didn't look like any of the themes were using extendedslidertext, so it didn't seem like a problem to redefine its meaning.

Let me know if there is a better way to do this.

(In [14726]) Change the format of the text displayed in the OSD for 'extendedstatustext' elements to be like "<time> of <time> (<time> remaining)". No OSD themes in current svn actually use that element as far as I can see.

Patch by David Asher. Closes #3524.
