refactor of the original skinning tools

# launch & install

drag and drop the mel file into the maya window, it will open a dialog in which you can start to install the skinningtools
after the intaller is complete, restart maya and use this `python` command to open the window:

import SkinningTools

myWindow = SkinningTools.tool()

there have been problems building the plugin on OSX and LINUX for maya 2024
the plugin has been build for WINDOWS.

# tooltips
since the tooltips are Gifs, and take up quite some space while gumroad does not allow for big files these will be downloaded automatically. in some cases this does not work so you can find the tooltips here:

make sure that these are unpacked in the SkinningTools/Maya/tooltips directory
