it would be helpful if in the object details there
would be a constellation entry. This can be very handy for deepsky
objects which are 'in between' constellations.

Good idea.  Adding it to the TODO.

CVS commit by harris: 

Fulfilling wish #82946 (include constellation in object details).

The constellation which contains the object is now displayed in the 
details dialog, and also in the top section of the popup menu.  Please 
let me know if you think the latter is overkill.  I kind of like it, but 
I know some people prefer smaller popup menus :)

Added function SkyPoint::constellation(), which returns the name of the 
constellation which contains the point.  It does this by iterating over 
all of the constellation-boundary line segments to find the pair of 
segments which bracket the point to the North and South.
