Reddit-style voting on Trac resources


This plugin adds a context-navigation entry that lets users easily vote for a Trac resource, including Wiki pages, tickets, milestones, etc.

If a user has a valid session and the VOTE_MODIFY permission they will be able to vote.

VotePlugin: Make compact and top standard wiki macro arguments, refs #4546 and #7592.

List output for all three macros is limited to a maximum of 5 items, if not
explicitely specified by top=<n>, where in turn 'n=0' means unlimited.
The previous limit of 10 items (TopVoted only) looked like too much.

And rendering of resource links respects the compact argument too, what
yields significantly reduced output for milestones and tickets.

VotePlugin: Re-enable voting on milestones, refs #4546, #7592 and #10942.

delete_vote obviously needed to not depend on a req object to work.
That went unnoticed, because it is called only by change listeners for now.

set_vote was not ready for unversioned resources, and a subtle insanity in
resource_from_path surfaced during early testing with milestones too.

Method name changes are done for clarity, that a single method call probably
deals with multiple vote entries.
