Unify and simplify vuex modules #1110

In the last months, I noticed some inconsistencies and unnecessary complexity growing in our vuex modules:

  • set mutations sometimes replace, sometimes updates state. They should always replace state.
  • update mutations sometimes accept one, sometimes multiple entries. They should always handle multiple entries if the module itself handles multiple ones.
  • filtering by scope (group, store, user etc) should always be done in getters. If there's stale data or performance problems, filtering can additionally be done in actions.
  • it seems easier to perform sorting in getters instead of mutations. So far, we did sorting of messages and history entries in mutations, but maybe doing it in getters simplifies code without noticable performance loss.
  • avoid pass-through actions, instead use mutations directly
  • some duplication could be removed, e.g. multiple places have a reactive current time (pickups, notifications, DateAsWords although this should stay independent of vuex).

There's also at least one outright bug:

  • PaginationMixin: if two backend requests are pending, the last one that succeeds defines the cursor. This could cause unwanted effects if the scope of the list changed (e.g. history switched between two stores). We should either take care to cancel unneeded requests or handle one cursor per scope.

Related issues:

  • #1091 talks about message store only
  • #1066 might mean moving vuex module files around

I'll have a deeper look at this during the next months...
