Settings export / import.

Automation for the exporting of settings and importing of settings. This would be nice instead of manually copying the vistumber_settings.ini file when using a backup system.

Thank you for your considerations.

This was actually something I originally planned to put in the settings window, but I never actually put that feature in. I think I even had import and export buttons on that screen commented out for the longest time, but I think i finally removed that code. Thinking now it would probably make more sense to put in outside the settings window so I don't have to update all the controls. Maybe as something in the Extras menu to export and import settings.

I have also been working on moving the settings out of the vistumbler directory and into the user profile directory, but I am still trying to figure out how I want to implement that.

I made a first attempt at this feature in v10.6.4 Beta 1. I haven't tested it much yet.

These should now be two extra options in the Extra manu
Export Vistumbler Settings - Save the current settings to an ini file
Import Vistumbler Settings - Overwrites the current settings file and exits vistumbler so the settings can be reloaded on next load
