[RNMobile] add isSelected prop to PlainText-backed blocks #11989

This is a follow up PR to #11857, bringing the same functionality to PlainText-backed blocks:

  • Promotes PlainText implementation to be a React Native component (so we can make use of the lifecycle events more clearly)
  • adds isSelected prop to Code and More blocks

By doing this, we can make it easier to handle the focus at the low level when isSelected is true.

How has this been tested?

To be tested as per indicated in wordpress-mobile/gutenberg-mobile#250

  1. make sure to select a block (tap on a block and see the up/down arrows appear, etc)
  2. now tap on the + inserter icon
  3. choose one of Code or More blocks (the only ones that currently are backed by PlainText implementation)
  4. observe the new block is inserted, the block is shown as selected (it has the up/down arrows and such) and the cursor starts blinking there (that is, it got the focus).


Before, the focus would not be gotten when a new "PlainText"-backed block was inserted:

Now, the cursor appears blinking after insertion:

It seems that style should be retrieved from props.
