Annotate Preferences Description

Allows you to sort your applications preferences by name. Every bundle which has a preference file contains a data item which Apple's document "The Preferences System", describes as "Preference files are stored as XML property lists in Unicode UTF-8 format. The name of each file in Library/Preferences is comprised of the application’s bundle identifier followed by the .plist extension. For example, the bundle identifier for the TextEdit application is so its preferences file name is"Although the rule is not followed scrupulously, even by Apple, it works often enough to be considered useful.Annotate Preferences scans for (application) bundles, reads its bundle identifier, then writes the name of the bundle into the comment of every preference file whose name begins with the bundle identifier.
