Changes to Batch Render menu have been checked into GIT.  Lots of
review/testing/decision making going on.  So basically this is the
compromise solution (which can be changed if necessary, but I really think
it is probably the best option).

1) new users or new .bcast5 will automatically never see the "warn on
mismatch" and "save edl"
2) existing users, if they are seeing these 2 warnings, will have to go
into Settings->Preferences, Appearance tab and uncheck DANGEROUS batch
render gui, in order to stop seeing these 2 warnings.  Just one time and
also be sure to use Settings pulldown to "save settings now".
3) anyone who wants to have these features available for use, has to get
into Settings and check/enable Dangerous flag to see the 2 boxes.

Tooltips added for several additional boxes helps to explain usage a little
better in Batch Render menu and some Preferences flags.

Code checked in mostly by Andrew with slight modifications for compromise
and wording changes.
