- Re-aranged the preferences in a much clear way (thanks for the mock ups Joshua Ochs!)

- Added better handling of bad data, hopefully preventing some of the crashes users have been seeing

- Added new, spiffy image for Meteo, created by Flavio Andrade. Thanks a ton!
- Added preference validation routine which should make it unneccessary to ever trash your preferences again
- Bug in "dock mode" that prevents active location from being represented with a check mark in the "Location Switcher" menu has been noted - it's an Apple thing, I have no control over this behavior. This also prevents images from being displayed in the dock menu.

- Local images for the menu's and menu bar are of size 16 by 16, and for the dock icon are of size 128 by 128 (when local images become available)
