[chirp_users] Naming of Narrow vs Wide FM differs between radios making copying channels difficult

It appears that some models (UV-B5, UV-82, TERMN-8R) refer to Narrow
FM as "NFM" and Wide FM as "FM", while others (Yaesu VX-8) appear to
refer to Narrow FM as "FM" and Wide as "WFM".

When one attempts to copy channels between radio drivers that use
different names chirp is unhappy and gives an error for every channel
with a non-compatible mode.

Should these names be made uniform across drivers?

Or am I just misinterpreting the "Mode" meaning (entirely possible).
