[Qgis-developer] Renaming Save Style -> Save Properties (Vector layer dialog)

Hi Nathan, all,

I completely agree we should change the "Save/restore Style" into
"Save/restore properties". I also think it could be great to have a button
"save style". But the latest should not lie in the bottom of the layer
dialog, but instead in the Style tab only, to avoid confusion.
By the way, having a "save style" button could also lead to the ability of
saving/restoring more than one style for each layer (via a combo box for
the restore button), which could be great too.
