Checking in the underlying prefs structure, and a prefPane, also fir structural integrity.  Also including a couple categories to extend a couple Cocoa objects, and some project changes to support building with the bundled prefPanes.  Also, added a contrib directory to house user contributed artifacts.  To come soon: more prefPanes, and the colorized icon store, with pref-generated notifications to be picked up by toolbars.

\f0\b0 \
It should be assumed that all PrefPanes, and the tab items within them, will be redesigned and tweaked to coinform to Apple's Aqua UI guidelines, and the more intuitive UE standards which Mac OS X users expect.  Though some setting groups will be moved around, most of Mozilla's Navigator pref functionality will be retained in Chimera's new structure.
