    (1) the preference scheme cannot change in the life-time of the
    application, simply because we have no UI that would allow that;
    when/if if implement such an UI, we need to add a listener to the
    class to handle the change, not to examine whether the scheme
    changed or not inside remapGlyph().

    (2) The remaping switches cannot change at runtime also because
    we have no UI for that. Further, the changes to the the remaping
    switches do not require the tables to be automatically deleted, only if
    the new tables are bigger than the old ones. Again, when/if an UI is
    added, we need to add a listener to the class, not run the tests within

    So I have moved all the code that deals with preferences into the
