RSA-RTE: Diagram editing Reuse Editor also when entering state via double click

The preference 'UML Development - Real Time - Diagrams - 'Reuse editor when performing Go Inside/Outside' should also be used when entering a substate via double click, because this is the most common method engineers use to enter a substate.

    We cannot change the default behavior of double-click on state and part symbols without taking into account that the current behavior has been explicitly requested by other users. However, we can provide for more flexibility by splitting the current "Reuse editor" preference into two separate boolean preferences:
    Reuse editor
    [] when performing 'Go Inside/Outside'
    [] when double-clicking a state or part symbol

    Then you could set the second of these preferences in order to map double-click to "Go Inside" rather than the default "Open State Machine/Structure Diagram" command.
