## Render simple counters in room header
Allows rendering of labelled counters above the message list.
Once enabled, send a custom state event to a room to set values:
1. In a room, type `/devtools` to bring up the devtools interface
2. Click "Send Custom Event"
3. Toggle from "Event" to "State Event"
4. Set the event type to: `re.jki.counter` and give it a unique key
5. Specify the content in the following format:
"link": "",
"severity": "normal",
"title": "my counter",
"value": 0
That's it. Now should see your new counter under the header.
