    Show VASSAL and VASL versions in .vsav or .vlog 3

    Updated Swedish Volunteers extension

    The current version of the Swedish Volunteers extension has the old ski counters and no Ahkios so I added them. The counter colors should probably be changed to the official colors, but I'm not a good enough artist to do that. What do I need to do to get this added to
