Include WEAPONBAB in BONUS:WEAPONPROF tag docs

Description

The functionality is present, just not documented.

== Old Description ==
BONUS:WEAPON has a tag of "WEAPONBAB" that raises the actual BAB with the specific weapon.

However, as BONUS:WEAPON is limited in application, but BONUS:WEAPONPROF is broader, I'm requesting this WEAPONBAB tag be ported over to work with BONUS:WEAPONPROF as well.

This will help complete a source book I'm working on for Pathfinder.

There are warnings on some of the older Pathfinder source books (Ultimate Magic, for example) about using the deprecated tag of BONUS:CHECKS instead of BONUS:SAVE, but those are standard sources for the Pathfinder Gamemode. I've apparently got a couple abilities in this sourcebook that use BONUS:CHECKS also, but no errors or warning in relation to the BONUS:WEAPONPROF line.
However: I tested a different ability that is also dependent on this code, to see if maybe it was specifically Unarmed that is causing the hiccups, and it is working. The code is:
CHOOSE:WEAPONPROFICIENCY|EQUIPMENT[TYPE=Simple]|EQUIPMENT[TYPE=Martial]|EQUIPMENT[TYPE=Exotic] MULT:YES STACK:NO AUTO:WEAPONPROF|%LIST BONUS:WEAPONPROF=%LIST|WEAPONBAB|MonkLVL-BAB
So it seems this NEWTAG JIRA isn't required, as the code is already in place. But BONUS:WEAPONPROF=Unarmed doesn't seem to work. I also tried BONUS:WEAPONPROF=Natural, but that failed to work also. I'll mess around with that some and see if I can find why, and will raise a different JIRA if I can't figure it out. Sorry, I hadn't tested it on manufactured weapons before now.

And apparently the proper syntax is BONUS:WEAPONPROF=Unarmed Strike.

This JIRA can be cancelled. Chock it up to not quite enough testing on my part, sorry.
