Very simple patch here: When someone buys exclusive transport rights in a town, it sends out a newspaper message to let everyone know what's happening, similar to the "Traffic chaos!" message. In fact, the handling of this message is identical to that one, except for the new string identifier. The intended effect is to make exclusive rights a bit more visible in multiplayer.
This task depends upon

That would be nice. Also, as for industries, this message (and the "road reconstruction too") should be toggleble for all cities/"my cities"/nothing (People may not want to be bothered by two players haggling over exclusive rights in town in which they have no stations/business at all)
