Plugin search box was made a separate component, etc.

I have been moving towards bringing back the "Add machine" menu option. The reason for this is that the plug-in list browser (the search box) kinda blows and is unusable and is annoying and I hate it. That being said I think it still has it's uses (if you have a lot of machines and want to find one by name). Thus I left it as a separate component that you can summon by going to the "View" menu and make it disappear the same way. Add machine menu is taking shape but it is still rather incomplete. I have taken the road of grouping the machines by the names of their authors so in the future that will have to be taken in to account when writing new machines. We will see how this particular strategy will work out, but it is employed by many VST hosts I think. Here is a screen-shot.
