[PythonCAD] Option changes and progress towards next release

A quick update on the option changes code I'm working on. I've got much
of the color handling changes in place, and have begun to modify the
code to make use of the new stuff. I've also been reworking the way
linetype, line style, and dimension style stuff is handled. I'll be
sending my changes to the public repository shortly.

I've also fixed a few bugs in other areas of the code while working on
these changes. Things like moving the dimension text should work, and
various entity storage/deletion mistakes will be fixed in the next
release. The dimension text moving fix is due to dumb typos on my part:
in Generic/move.py, change 'getDimLocation()' to 'getLocation()', and
change 'setDimLocation()' to 'setLocation()'. These changes are in the
small '_moveDimension()' function. Sheesh, it's only a couple of lines
and I screwed it up twice. :-(

I'd like to hear from people who have been retrieving the code with
subversion and find out if checkouts work for them, and what version of
subversion they are running. As a new Apache release was made today
(2.0.47), I'll probably try and upgrade that on the repository host
machine sometime this week or next, and hopefully between now and the
time of the upgrade the 0.25 subversion release will be made. It would
be good to post results to the mailing list so that others can see them
as well.

Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities
the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.
