Option to keep freezes and bands, manage slow filters

More idealize functions in case of small idealize score
Idealize starts only after first normal loop (starts with original Quickfix)
Disjunct list in order not to repeat always same thinks (but regular disjunct reset in order to find new worst).
2 filer management options (filter only for scoring or always but wiggling)
Quick shake action on low clashing score.
Each loop, the threshold is changed: can be used overnight, still gaining micropoints (only ok if you absolutely want to keep this structure - ok for design or de novo on a beautiful structure)
Record of big steps (when stopping, undo 2-5 times in order to select what you prefer)
Result recorded in note for a free segment

Used to: see original (fixing after manual changes). I use it on start design puzzle, freezing helixes ans sheets, for fragment score enhancement. Then unfreezed, overnight.
I use it on all puzzle, start, middle and end game to try to eliminate red segments on relative scores.

Fixed quadruplet out of range

Added new Cut Worst function
The idea is to select the worst quadruplets (bellow a certain threshold), to cut inside or before or after it, wiggle all, uncut, wiggle all.

This function is activated only after several loops (when the protein is stable enough), or after 3 loops when points are above 9000. The default is no activation ("never run wiggle all"), because this function could explode the protein. The default option is thus like original QF3.2

When button "never wiggle all" is unchecked and score is above 9000, loop 4 cuts inside the worst zones, loop 5 cuts inside and then before, further loops cut inside, before then after the worst zone.

I tested this new "CutWorst" function on end puzzle and it gained some unexpected micro points. It seems that all strategies (inside, outside) are able to gain points, so that I did not make it an explicit option.

Better filter management (case option filter enabled)

More options to better protect parts of protein (see dialog)
New functions:
-rebuild worst ideality
-shake or mutate worst hiding & worst clashing
Mutate worst only (instead of mutate all including freezed in original version)

3.3.5: reduce the number of movements in sketchbook puzzles
3.3.6: more big steps saves and more undos left (can be useful for filtered puzzles, in order to retrieve a result with correct filter bonus)

Check for no high filter cost on filtered puzzles

Tip max filter cost / case (only available for filtered puzzles):

10-20 pts filter loss is ok (it's less than losing an ideal loop, but enough for accepting some residue scoring too low);

Set it to 999 in order to deactivate this function and save some time (it's the default for puzzles > 8-9000 pts, when filters alone are enough to select the best score)
