Simplify extensions/plugins/hooks/etc #129

Currently, to maintain a large application of extensions/plugins you generally need a 'bootstrap' file that registers handlers/etc, and then keep your actually libraries externally. Cement does this in namespace packages for 'ext' and 'lib'... but it gets messy.

Would like to consider adding a requirement for a 'load()' function in an extension/plugin modules. This way you can import classes/etc from the module... without actually registering/loading the extension/plugin. Something like:

from cement.core import handler, hook

def my_post_setup_hook(app):

class MyHandler(handler.CementHandler):

def load(app):
    hook.register('post_setup', my_post_setup_hook)

This way, I can still import MyHandler from the module if, for example, I want to sub-class it. But nothing is loaded. Can then move all decorators to 'cement.core.decorators' (maybe).
