(Whiteboard: [keyboard2-feature-parity])

The refactored keyboard in test_apps/demo-keyboard/ currently has various forms of typing assistance always on. They should be on or off depending on user settings and on the current input mode.  (For example, we should not autocorrect or autocapitalize in verbatim mode).
Note that dynamic hit target resizing should also be turned off for verbatim input and password fields where next character prediction is likely to be unhelpful.
Turning typing assistance on and off is also going to require refactoring the way the various modules are currently implemented.  They currently don't have any API so once they've been started they can't be turned off. So I'll need to refactor the existing code.  On the bright side, this will make it easier to write tests.
