Scripting RixPattern Plugins

A number of improvements have been made to the way that Cutter handles .args documents. The accuracy of the preview of an args UI has been greatly improved. For example, figures 1 & 2 show a side-by-side comparisons of Pixar's PxrNormalMap node as seen in Maya's Attribute Editor and as previewed in a web browser. Previewing the UI of args document is done using the keyboard shortcut Alt+e, Control+e or Apple+e.

Previews are best seen using the Chrome browser.

Cutter's (RixPattern) code generater has also been improved. C++ code is generated from a .args document using the (right mouse click) popup menu.
