Add better overlay defaults behavior

IJ1 make the Overlay Options dialog set defaults and apply changes to the current selection. Break out this behavior into two dialogs. One for setting defaults and one for updating existing rois. Maybe make the second one have a button that says "make these the default settings". Think about this more. Currently IJ2 has Overlay Properties with no defaulting behavior and IJ1 has Overlay Options which does both tasks. Extending IJ2's version to have both concerns causes some hacky dependency issues.

Have a partial implementation on my machine. Need to test that it works before committing. And deal with the default fill color issue documented in OptionsSynchronizer.

TODO - make sure any tool that creates a ROI uses the default attributes set in Edit :: Options :: Overlay.

Opened previous TODO as separate ticket: #874

TODO - current implementation has returned behavior of being unable to specify a fill color that is reflected in IJ1's Overlay Options plugin. And gets set back to none after running the plugin.

TODO - it might be best to relocate OptionsOverlay plugin to same menu position as IJ1.

TODO - is it possible to combine Overlay Properties and the OverlayOptions dialogs in a fashion similar to IJ1?

Relocated in menu tree to Image :: Overlay :: Overlay Options

Decided to leave the two dialog solution.
