Navigator update: better conversion to behaviors, better property editing, better version control, and send to private commands

I decided to bite the bullet and build a dialog/palette for the process.
There are too many options to set, etc., and it just makes it easier. I
almost finished it for testing last night before going to sleep. I'm taking
a road trip today, but if I don't fall into bed tonight it should be done.
BTW, with the dialog adding all enclosed controls as an option was one line
of code:

put allUniqueIDsOf(fld "id list") into fld "id List"

I love it when (long) past Geoff does things right and I have it easy as a
result.
