      Description

      For optimization and customization purposes, it would be nice to open the preference-window with a selected preference, instead of always select the first preference in list.

      You can submit the preference, that you want to pre-select in the opening-procedure of the preference window.
      For example the FileTransferPreference.
      By opening the preference window, spark should search all existing preferences in the preference-list and compare the namespaces.
      If, for example, the FileTransferPreference is contained in the preference-list of spark, that preference will be selected while
      opening the preference-window for the user.
      If the FileTransferPreference is not contained in the preference-list of spark, the first preference will be selected.

      The idea to offer this option was to provide a fast way of configuring specific preferences. So if something is going wrong or need to be configured by the user, we can create a simple button to guide the user to the specific preference, instead of giving a message with text only, like "please open the the preferences and select the target preference-tab to configure it".
