API Reverse config extra statics control flow
Config system used to provide an add_static_source method, which was intended for use by Extensions to add statics. But extensions for a class arent initialised until at least one instance of that class is created, so before that the Config system didnt include values from extensions This patch reverses the control flow, so that the Config system explictly asks each Object for its additional config sources via the new method get_extra_config_sources. This method returns an array that can contain string names of classes and also raw associative arrays. The developer visible change is that Extension#add_to_class has been deprecated. Instead there is a new method, get_extra_config, which has the same method signature but needs to guarantee that it doesnt cause side effects. Additionally there is no need to call parent::get_extra_config - this is handled automatically.
