Details:

Max packet number in S2_5 is now 232. That's still plenty below 255, so I
don't think having only 8bits for the packet type would cause problems.
freeciv-web has some additional packets, but as it has incompatible network
protocol completely reimplemented anyway, it's not a big problem here. So,
should we revert the change that made packet type 16bit, of which upper byte
is always 0, in S2_5?
That could possibly also resolve bug #20714 for S2_5.
