[OpenLayers-Dev] register Events, deactivate->unregister, activate->register, destroy->unregister and destroy, ufff! I had an idea!

Hi devs,
My idea has three parts

1. In the ticket #2518 I proposed the new method addListener for controls.
By calling it, the events and listeners are stored in an array and there was
no need to do anything else. And now I thought: their use can be transverse
on many OpenLayers objects.
2. On the other hand I was worried about the unintended effects of
KeyboardDefaults control. I thought: to move the cursor on the map, the
mouse is used exclusively almost. Therefore the solution was that
KeyboardDefaults don't work when the mouse is out the map.
3. moseover/moseout had a problem: many events occur that are not relevant.
This was a problem that I've solved by new mapmouseover/mapmouseout events.
And their use also can be transverse.

See it working in:
NOTE: the code OpenLayers.js is compressed due to problems with my hosting. 

See ticket http://trac.openlayers.org/ticket/2577 for changes in the code, I
opened this ticket to discuss my approach, would appreciate any comments.

That's all folks!
