archived old lists

Tidied up SkyTools3.

I was feeling a little overwhelmed, if that's the right word, with the increasing number of observing lists being presented by the planning software tool. My "urban observing" group had a couple dozen entries; my "dark skies big 'scopes" group had about three dozen! And, invariably, the one I wanted to use was near the bottom. A combination of the netbook's small screen and the alphabetic/chronologic menus, I was struggling to quickly find and choose my preferred lists. When it occurred to me... these are old lists. So, get them out of our face!

I created an "archive" observing list group. And promptly moved old star party, urban observing, and dark sky lists into the new group. There! Much better.
