This patch enhances the mandelbrot plugin (Plugins->Demo->mandelbrot) in the following ways:

- It lays the foundation to add additional fractals sets, other then just Mandelbrot.
- I has interruptible painting function, which allows browsing fractal during painting.
- It separates code parts into separate files, each with its own functionality

The patch is in working condition, but there is still some bug fixing and tweaking left to be done.

The code currently contains some debug printings (you will get warnings during compilation because of that).

I would like to get further comments (e.g. suggestion of different file naming) for other developers.
This task depends upon
