This is for #8795. It adds Debug > Open Brackets Source, which opens the Brackets source code in Brackets.
It's the easiest possible solution - it just opens the symlink dir (like C:\Program Files (x86)\Brackets\dev on Windows).
The menu entry is only enabled in development builds and not in experimental (release) builds.

Since I heard of several problems with symlinks, it's no problem to me if you don't accept this PR.


Looks good on OSX. I'm going to check on my Windows VM later today.


Opens fine on Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit).


Looks good to me on Windows too. Thanks @MarcelGerber!

I just realized this is fairly risky because it will hit #6692. Put up PR #9399 with a quick fix.
