Up/down next/previous staff navigation buttons in Staff Properties dialog, similar to existing feature in Measure Properties

The Measure Properties dialog includes an immensely useful pair of buttons in the lower left corner, enabling the user to switch to editing the properties of the next or previous measure without closing and reopening the dialog. However, these buttons are missing from the Staff Properties dialog. They would need to be vertically oriented rather than horizontally, but the principle is the same, and hopefully it would be easy to implement.


I think I'd like to have a go at this one. The request itself seems isolated/simple enough for someone like myself. It might take me some time, as I'm not that intimate with the code yet and I might fail at this attempt completely in the end but trying never hurt anyone :)

I'll check how the measure properties dialog handles this and see if I can figure out similar behavior.

Rebases done now. As the method for retrieving a staff index changed; this might need a separate PR against 2.0.4 though..

It's merged but it's a pain to cherry pick in 2.0.4. If everybody thinks it's valuable in 2.0.4 (I don't, for the record), I'm fine accept a PR on the 2.0.4 branch.

Over to jeetee ;-)
