Add-in settings

I’ve added more organization to add-in settings storage and activation configuration.

Previously add-ins stored global settings in the add-ins directory near the binary files. Now I’ve added the GetAddinSettingsDirectory method to the ITabsStudioEngine interface providing a directory near general Tabs Studio settings. It makes possible to have separate add-in settings for SSMS 2008 and Visual Studio 2008.

Previously all .dll add-ins from the add-ins directory were loaded at startup. Now the list of active add-ins is stored near general Tabs Studio settings. You control this list as usual from Add-in Manager. It again makes now possible to have separate active add-ins for SSMS 2008 and Visual Studio 2008.

Export/import settings now save and restore all add-in settings as well.
