45de507 adds the sep= argument to the WebGL class.

The default is still binary (sep='') because the FEops
fewgl.js application seems not to support the ascii pgf
mode yet, at least not for the examples I tried.
(Needs checking)

Also, the option should be added to export dialogs.

Binary format when exporting webGL originates at
pyformex/plugins/webglline 306:

Geometry.write(obj, attrib.file, '')

The sep='' means BINARY, when writing the pgf file.
Should the binary/ASCII selection be exposed tothe user up to pyformex.gui.draw.exportWebGL() ??

Also, we should test it with zipped files: is BINARY.pgf.gz really smaller than ASCII.pgf.gz? If not then ASCII should be set as default (I will try to verify this).
