	GetPrefs -- Get the current Intuition Preferences structure.

	Prefs = GetPrefs( PrefBuffer, Size )
	D0		  A0          D0

	struct Preferences *GetPrefs( struct Preferences *, WORD );

	Gets a copy of the current Intuition Preferences structure.
	Writes the data into the buffer you specify.  The number of bytes you
	want copied is specified by the size argument.

	It is legal to take a partial copy of the Preferences structure.
	The more pertinent preferences variables have been grouped near
	the top of the structure to facilitate the memory conservation
	that can be had by taking a copy of only some of the Preferences

	New for V36:  A new and more extensible method for supplying
	Preferences has been introduced in V36, and relies on file
	system notification.  The Intuition preferences items rely
	also on the IPrefs program.  Certain elements of the
	Preferences structure have been superseded by this new method.
	As much as possible, the Preferences structure returned by
	GetPrefs() reflect the current state of Preferences.  However,
	it is impossible to represent some of the V36-style preferences
	items using the existing Preferences structure.

	PrefBuffer = pointer to the memory buffer to receive your copy of the
           Intuition Preferences
	Size = the number of bytes in your PrefBuffer, the number of bytes
           you want copied from the system's internal Preference settings

	Returns your parameter PrefBuffer.
