Allow custom form types for user, system and measurable settings #10992
This PR allows us to show custom field types in User-, System- and Measurable-Settings. No longer limited to text, textarea, select, ...
Defining a new field is as easy as eg https://github.com/piwik/piwik/blob/3.x-dev/plugins/CorePluginsAdmin/angularjs/form-field/field-text.html
This is really useful since we were often not able to define settings eg as System Settings because one setting was a bit more complicated and could not be visualized with our default UI settings control but now we can wrap pretty much anything with it.
By default the values for it will be stored along a site, measurable, plugin settings but with just a very few lines and by implementing it is super easy to store settings for a field in a different backend see this interface:
Say you have a custom setting for trusted hosts or something else and want to keep the existing place for storing that information then you just wrap the calls to save that method in such an interface.
Needs to be documented eventually.
