301 - Option to switch between breed icons / id's (letter format)

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?

Could we get an option to select what format we would like to see the pet breed id's in (ie icon or letter format).

Please provide any additional information below.

In 5.4.1 breed id's used to be displayed in their letter format H/H S/S etc, now they are shown as icons. There doesn't seem to be any way to revert it back to the old (letter based) system.

    Hello I just started using this addon and I'd like to know if there is a key for these icons. I don't mind them I'd just like to know what they mean. Thanks

    Hey thePete, here's a quick change you can do to get letters back until the feature is made:

    in Display.lua:

    Addon.BreedNames = { [3] = '(B/B)', [4] = '(P/P)', [5] = '(S/S)', [6] = '(H/H)', [7] = '(H/P)', [8] = '(P/S)', [9] = '(H/S)', [10] = '(P/B)', [11] = '(S/B)', [12] = '(H/B)', }

    and in Journal.lua in GetOwnedText

    local icon = Addon:GetBreedName(breed)

    Sorry the letter format was supplied by the addon "Battle Pet BreedId" and would show up while using Pet Tracker version 5.4.1 and below. It is now over written by the new icons in Pet Tracker.

    So I guess it would be good if Pet Tracker could have an option to show the breeds in the same format. Not sure if getting the two addons to work nicely together is an option :)
