New "AddDataTypes", V45.2

This is the datatypes.library V45.3-matching release.

Includes a set of sample descriptors with tools, including descriptors for
AmigaVision Flow,
Aminet ReadMe,
FantaVision (IFF FANT),
IFF AIFF,
IFF SMUS,
LHarc,
MovieSetter and so on.


Part of the "DataTypes Replacement Project", which includes a new
"AddDataTypes", a new "datatypes.library" and a new "MultiView"
(GMultiView).

Changes since V45.1:
- Fixed the bug that AddDataTypes requests locale.library with a minimum version
  of V39. Now this is correctly set to V38, and AddDataTypes won't fire up the  
"Lib not found"-requester if locale.library wasn't found (not a MUST-BE-THERE  
resource).
  Fixed.

- Added basic descriptors for all GID_#? types (e.g. system, text, document,
sound,   instrument, music, picture, animation and movie).

- Some internals prepared for "objecttools.library".

- Added WB tooltype support.

- Added "Prefs"-like WB icon.

- Added check for illegal characters in the descriptor to get rid of the saving
problem   (e.g. when a descriptor's name contains ':', '/' etc.).

Changes since V41.6:
- Rewritten GUI.
  The gui has been improved and updated.

- Major code cleanup.

- AddDataTypes now contains internal safety checks, and notifies the user  
about problems (can't open library, can't load/save descriptor, corrupt
descriptor etc.).

Features are:
- Fully compatible to the CBM Versions V39, V40 etc.

- Fully compatible to datatypes.library V45 (which support the new features)

- Includes a editor for the datatypes descriptors.

- Supports Tool Nodes.
  "Tool Nodes" are an unused datatypes feature.
  Using tool nodes, you can add tools (which supports the special data format in
a special way)
  to the datatype descriptors.

  Applications like "GMultiView" are able to launch these special tools (e.g if
the tool list   includes a tool which is able to edit the datatype, you can use
the "NetScape"-like menu item   "Project/Open file in editor").

- AppWindow/AppIcon support for easy adding/removing descriptors from the
system's descriptor list.
