DataBrowser Folder Versioning Button

// This installs or removes a VersionFolder button in the DataBrowser
// The VersionFolder button will create a duplicate of the currently selected data folder
// with a date+time stamp appended to it:  'folder name'YYMMDDHHSS
// Copy this to the procedure window, compile, open a Data Browser,
// and then type InstallVersions() on the command line
// Select a data folder to version and click the VersionFolder button
// Remove the button by typing RemoveVersions() at the command line
// This also works with multiple data folders selected ... it will parse and run the command on each one
// It may choke on data folders with long names!
