Stella SVN r2236

"r2234
Added ability for the debugger to start up in 'fatal error' mode.
This basically shows a messagebox as soon as the debugger starts,
describing the error and offering the choice to continue debugging
or exiting the ROM entirely.

The DPC+ code now catches fatal errors from the Thumb ARM
emulation code and shows it as a fatal error in the debugger.
This means you no longer need to look at the commandline for
this output, and you immediately know that something has
gone wrong.

Added 'exitrom' debugger parser command, which completely exits
from the debugger *and* the ROM, going back to the ROM launcher.

Cleaned up the API a little, rearranging some classes and
adding references instead of pointers. More work to be done
in this area.
r2235
Updated VS 2010 project files for recent class changes.
r2236
Updated VS 2005 project files for recent class changes."
