Create a setting for turning off blinking within Padres Editor

A recent email through padre-dev list highlighted that we have users out there who want to turn off the blinking cursor.

This link describes the various way applications are set - possibly there are environment variables that could be queried:


http://www.yellowbrain.com/stc/caret.html#setperiod is the information regarding what to set for the blink rate in the STC control.

It would be good if this could be done for 0.70 release, so I've marked it critical. I don't suspect this is a huge undertaking.

I have had a go at adding this setting to Padre.

Just have to update the tests and this should actually be right to go.

The editor_cursor_blink setting exists and works. (You need to access it via Advanced preferences for now until the preferences rewrite is done)
