develop an extension to enable show_bug experimentation.

notes:

- implement alternative views as show_bug formats
- add a preference to allow users to change the default show_bug format
  - formats need to register via a hook to be added to the pref
  - eventually this could happen automagically based on user roles, client device, etc
- make changes to show_bug.cgi where required
  - eg. the format needs to give hints to bugzilla with regards to which data to preload
  - implemented via hooks
- formats may require custom webservice methods to fill api gaps

Attached patch 1090735_1.patch WIP β€” β€” Splinter Review
work-in-progress patch.

functional but is likely to require modifications and/or new features as a real alternative view is developed.
while working through this, i found introduced a level of complexity/hacks that i wasn't happy with.

in order to streamline getting the first UI released, i've removed this alternative format switching extension.

bug 1096798 becomes the new goal.
