nassh: rewrite options page to be more Chrome like

Use the chrome-bootstrap project to get an options page that looks like
standard Chrome options pages.

We also change the theming behavior so that instead of modfiying the
current page, we actually create a small hterm window.  Now people can
see what the settings will look like, and we don't have to duplicate
the settings mappings ourselves.

TEST=looked at the options page

Top level directories

  • libdot/ is a small set of JS libraries initially developed as part of hterm, now available as shared code. It provides a base layer for web applications. The code is intended to work in any modern browser, in either a plain web page or a “privileged” environment such as a Chrome platform application or Firefox extension. In practice, it's only been put to use in Chrome platform applications so far.

  • hterm/ is a JS library that provides a terminal emulator. It is reasonably fast, reasonably correct, and reasonably portable across browsers.

  • nassh/ is a Chrome App (currently a “v1.5” app, soon to become a “v2” or platform app) that combines hterm with a NaCl build of OpenSSH to provide a PuTTY-like app for Chrome users.

  • wash/ is a library for cross-origin virtual filsystems, similar to the Plan 9 filesystem. This directory also contains a simple bash-like shell environment for exploring these filesystems. The code in this directory is a work-in-progress.
