Extract facet code out into a new plugin hook, closes #427 #445

Datasette previously only supported one type of faceting: exact column value counting.

With this change, faceting logic is extracted out into one or more separate classes which can implement other patterns of faceting - this is discussed in #427, but potential upcoming facet types include facet-by-date, facet-by-JSON-array, facet-by-many-2-many and more.

A new plugin hook, register_facet_classes, can be used by plugins to add in additional facet classes.

Each class must implement two methods: suggest(), which scans columns in the table to decide if they might be worth suggesting for faceting, and facet_results(), which executes the facet operation and returns results ready to be displayed in the UI.
