Name changes to GUI

Rik-4
6/13/18

Per a post a few weeks back, I have changed some of the GUI strings.  In
particular, the window for changing defaults is now "Preferences" rather
than "Settings" since that is what more people preferred.  Also, I changed
"Terminal" to "Command Window" since that is actually what is implied.

I'm not a UI expert, but shouldn't the tabs in the Preferences window be
re-ordered?  After the first "General" tab, the rest are windows, and then
"Shortcuts", "Network", and "Variable Editor".  Since "Variable Editor" is
a window like "Editor" or "File Browser" shouldn't it be listed before
"Shortcuts"?

Thus, the new order should be the following?

Gerenal
Command Window
Editor
Editor Styles  (maybe added to a larger Editor pane)
File Browser
Workspace
Variable Editor
Shortcuts
Network

That is what makes sense to me.

I have pushed cset
http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/00bfb85bfb28 where the panes
are reordered and where I have moved the editor styles prefs into the
editor pane.
