Data Converter - Record changes to a log file

Description

I'll look into the feasibility of logging the changes. The key is providing something more useful than comparing the before and after files as this log will be really large. Logging just the input requests might be a good starting point, along with info at the start of the log about what it is processing.

A log file dataChanges.log is now created in the pcgen directory each time the data converter is run. The file will contain an entry each time a token is modified so it could get quite long! A sample of the contents is:

dataChanges.log

In addition to general conversion this will be quite useful for debugging/refining the syntax conversion.
