OutputDevice code reorganization

In my ongoing efforts to refactor, document, understand and generally
cleanup OutputDevice, I'm finding it increasingly hard to keep track of the
way the files are laid out.
Currently the files have very little order. The functions are split out
into 6 seperate outdevx.cxx files (where x is a number).
I have pushed a private branch to propose a change to the layout:
I have moved outdev.cxx to outdev6.cxx to the directly vcl/source/outdev,
and into the following files:
outdev.cxx (for a variety of clipping functions, etc)
bezier.cxx (for two shared bezier functions)
I think this largely helps split up the file in a more sensible layout.
I realise that there is some concern that this might make merging Apache
Open Office code with our own, but I feel that the file layout
rearrangement really aids in code clarity. Certainly I find it helpful to
just be able to look up specific functions in a more intuitive to
I know that it builds - I would just like to get some feedback on the
layout before I push it out to master.
