New Features for 3.12
[1842449, 1000639] Implement standard F3 for repeat Find shortcut.
 Implement minimum lengths of types of characters in the password
policy i.e. 3 uppercase + 2 lowercase + 1 digit etc. Feature
is incompatible with 'pronounceable' or 'easy-to-read' passwords.
 Implement individual password policy for entries that will override the
current database policy. User can still override the individual policy or
the database policy.
 An entry may have multiple references, or "shortcuts" to it, similar to
Windows' shortcuts. These may be thought of as "synonyms" of the entry. To
create a shortcut, drag an entry with the right mouse button pressed.
 Graphics added to menus.
 New password generation option: Pronounceable passwords. Thanks to Tom
Van Vleck, Morrie Gasser, and Dan Edwards.
