#133 Add menu entry to switch between orthogonal/perspective view

For next release

I use a lot of 3D graphs. With an orthogonal rendering mode, every node gets the same size, which makes navigation quite difficult.

Everything seems to be in place to support a perspective rendering mode.

Please find attached a patch to add an entry to the NodeLinkDiagram right-click menu.

Moreover, I propose to enable perspective view by default, since it makes navigation in the graph easier. See the constructor of GlScene (tulip-ogl/src/GlScene.cpp +88).

    Thanks a lot for your feedback and patch.
    This feature was existing in Tulip 3 gui, but mysteriously disappeared in Tulip 4.
    It has been re-intgrated in the current svn code line.
    A user preference has been added to manage the default type of projection, while an item in the GlMainView contextual menu and a "Projection" frame in the scene rendering parameters config widget have been added to switch between the 2 types of projection.
