Description

The current Constants Editor requires clicking on a checkbox and reloading the entire editing form in order to edit a single constant. This can be improved by using Javascript to make the editing more dynamic.

A demo of this dynamic editing can be seen at http://webempoweredchurch.com/fileadmin/proj/misc/constants_editor.mp4

In addition, the HTML output of the submodule can be cleaned up to produce more semantically valid HTML.

There's still plenty of room for discussion on this patch. Is a trash can the appropriate icon or should we have something that indicates close or rollback instead of delete.

We'll also need intregration with the new docheader for the Templates module once that is complete.

As such, this is an attempt to get the patch out there for inclusion in 4.2, but I expect there will be some refinements needed.
