Convert YIPI5 YCP to newer Y5P format

YIPI5 now uses a unified file system. You may have older projects that need conversion from the ".YCP" to ".Y5P" format.

To convert to the Y5P format, do the following:

NOTE: BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES, BACKUP YOUR FILES!!!

1. Rename your YCP file exactly to "panel.ycp"

2. Open the panel.ycp file in a text editor. Using the editor's "replace" function, find all occurrences of backgroundImagePath="Images/ and replace it with backgroundImagePath="
That will effectively strip the "Images/" part of the file path. 

3. Copy all images next to the panel.ycp file (same folder level, not in a separate folder).

4. Finally zip the panel.ycp together with the images it next to it, but rename the zip file to *.y5p, such as "panel.y5p"
