Persistent tool

Description
This tool is a more simple and faster version to persistent props (save entities to map).
Before you had to hold C, right click a prop and press "Make persistent" but now you can take the tool and fire on all the props you want persistented!
The sbox_persist console varible needs to be set to 1 for this to work.

It also got a custom tool screen that displays the state of the prop you are looking at with a icon:
Tick = Prop is persisted
Cross = Prop is not persisted
Questionmark = You are not looking at prop

How to use:
Primary: Start persisting
Secondary: Stop persisting
Reload: Toggle persisting

WARNING: When you take out the tool for the first time you start or join a game you will get an error, this error is meant to happen, it is needed to fix a rendering bug, if I did not have this error the icons would not be displayed.

If you dont want everybody to be able to use it, you should get a admin mod that allows disabling of tools.

...Wait, so "Make Persistent" makes props stay even after reload?!
I have over 1800 hours in Garry's Mod, yet only now I figure that out. ._.

Bug report: When I change the tool to this, it gives me an error on top-left but somehow there is no error at all.
Do you think you can remove the error message? This tool looks ok.

As for the guys asking, making a prop or ragdoll persistent is making them unmovable to the physgun. It's useful for not unfreezing and moving props by accident.

This made keeping set pieces stable while posing ragdolls a lot faster. Also, the tool showing if an entity is non-persistent, persistent, or a map brush/displacement is a very nice and helpful touch.
