A better way to browse drawers

Workbench Explorer (WEx) is a modern file browser loaded with the features
you are used to, but also with several new functions/features no other file
browser has.

I hate writing manuals, but do read the included the AmigaGuide and Office
compatible doc file.

In Preferences->Installed tab there is a list of items that will add extra
functionality if they are installed.

Turn on Preview pane to:
     * View images
	 * Read text files
	 * View GIF anims
	 * Play MP3s

The purpose of Commodity Mode is to have WEx started at boot up
(WBStartup) and will be running in the background.  Then using the
hotkey (default: LAmiga + E) it will open.  Closing the window will ony
hide the interface.

###### [2.2 build 9000] - 2018-12-18			Happy Holidays!
### Added
- Preferences->Appearance
You can now specify listbrowser background colors for the Navigation pane like
you can for the Content pane.
- Paste, file exists but is delete protected, you are now prompted with Force,
Force all, Skip, or Abort.
- Tool Type Editor now shows both icon images.
- Tool Type Editor, click on the icon image will save the tool types and
launch the program for testing.

### Fixed
- After making "permanent" changes in Preferences and hit Cancel, those
changes are un-done better now.
- Preferences->Window->Open on own screen
This will disable the window position gadgets since they are not necessary.
- Preferences->Window->Save position
If checked then the gadgets are enabled.
- "Get drawer size" said "No files selected" when it should say "No drawers
- When Cut/Paste a link, the linked item was deleted, not just the link.
- Paste is better at handling a drawer with the same filename in it.  Faster.
- Cut/Copy append was not appending correctly.
- Delete is better at handling a drawer with the same filename in it.  Faster.
- Bug that affected some people when using Quit All and some other functions.

### Changed
Autosave position -> Save position
Just to clarify, if this is checked then when save preferences the window size
and position will be saved, as well.  Once you have your desired size and
position you should uncheck this option.
- Use my InfoData gadget class where appropriate.

### Removed
- Horizontal bar above OK/Cancel gadgets in all windows.  Smog.  ;-)
