[dev.icinga.com #3396] Revamped cronk list menu, list and icon style, scroll behavior #950

Improving the design and behavior of the cronk menu
some people prefer it more static (like the classic ui), so the clickable icons might confuse people away.
my proposal - add simple static links to the left menu, basically all categories open, but allowing to hide them on demand (like classic ui).
i am not sure if that fits with the current fancy layout, but it would maybe help in acceptance when moving from old to new.

or that one.
though, i was thinking of how the extjs menu is done in various demos - there's also sort of a tree view possible, but i doubt that this would fit for the general menue - unless the cronk "categories" would support grouping there as well (dynamic).

there's a problem when upgrading from r1.8 to next (say "1.8.x to 1.9.x"), having that change of the menu enabled.
if you do not reset the application state for the user, the width of the menu is smaller (like the small icon list would need), but the bigger icons are still shown, and somewhat disordered.
this should be taken into account when proposing this change to users, especially when support questions may turn in.
other than that, i still like the new view.
r1.8 (1.8.2) with big icons menu
next (pre 1.9.0) with current appstate after upgrade
next (pre 1.9.0) reset appstate for the user
next (pre 1.9.0) with small icons list

maybe the appstate reset can be resolved somehow, at least it should be mentioned in the upgrade docs. the docs issue should be opened once the direction (which menue is the default?) to go is clear.
it should contain
