As mentioned in #1950, it would be nice to not have an overlay graying out the entire screen when someone else pauses, allowing the others to continue clicking on units and buildings, investigating what the allies and enemies are doing etc.
There should be a setting so that people can chose which variant to use, defaulting to the current one.
The pausing players can be shown in the topright corner where lagwarnings are also shown (see that removed TODO in the commit of #1950).
Notice players can technically still issue commands, which could probably be stopped by returning false from
controlsPlayer if it's paused.
The current overlay might disable the camera hotkeys using #3676 since scrolling with the mouse is equally impossible.
