ODF and Generic Change Tracking: part II, styles.

So now abiword can save and load ODF files with improved generic tracked changes to styles. These style changes might be nested, and the window that a style is applied to might shift over revisions. The below video demonstrates the scenario in example 6.4.2 of the generic track changes proposal that is being considered by the Advanced Document Collaboration OASIS ODF Technical subcommittee.

The actual serialization to ODF is along the lines of my proposed output but also using the ac:change stack to avoid unnecessary nesting as has been mentioned that OpenOffice might produce and consume if the generic proposal were to be chosen by the oasis subcommittee.
