Add disclosure triangle to show/hide detail of a split transaction

Now, when a split transaction is selected by mouse or up/down keyboard control, all the split details are shown (though, with a delay on the keyboard control).

Instead, use a disclosure triangle (or repurpose the "split" icon as one) to show and hide the split transactions.

Add a configuration option "Automatically show split transactions" which defaults to true so that current operation is maintained. When this option is deselected, the split details should not be shown unless one clicks the disclosure triangle.

When using the keyboard to navigate the transaction register, left and right arrow should show/hide the split details.

Further more, I'd advocate moving the disclosure triangle / split icon to it's own column, which is in support of another feature request "Allow a category for split balance".

    @pheller  There is a preference setting (Preferences > Register) to "automatically show splits in register". If you turn this off, then the splits won't automatically show when you navigate to a transaction.

    If you want to see the splits, enter the keyboard command Command-Option-S or double-click on the transaction.

    D'oh. Well, it is embarrassing to have missed that option. One thing I observe though, that makes the feature request still somewhat valid: when "automatically show splits in register" is selected, the splits are shown in a read-only form, as with all the transactions in the register.

    When you disable this preference, then double clicking or using cmd-opt-s to show/hide the splits, they are shown in an editable way.

    Thanks again for pointing this out.
