    This commit is actually the joint work of Mahmoud Kassaei, Colin

    the page enough that it will be possible to add new features in future.
    Display of mod/quiz/edit.php is now entirely generated by
    mod_quiz\output\edit_renderer. This uses a helper class
    mod_quiz\structure to provide details of the structure of the quiz, and
    mod_quiz\repaginate to alter that structure. (Acutally, there are still

    cleaned up in future.)
    The new code uses much more ajax, and there are new scripts
    mod/quiz/edit_rest.php and mod/quiz/repaginate.php to handle this.
    (Again, don't be surprised if those two scripts get merged in future.)

    and moved into the core question bank code.)

    are done when editing activities on the course page.
    As a result of this, mod/quiz/editlib.php is now much shorter than it
    was. (In future, expect the remaining code in here to move into
