New web app for setup and replacement for mythweb

There is a new web application in the master branch. Running on 
http://backend:6744, it supports everything in mythtv-setup. It will 
replace mythtv-setup and allow you to do the complete setup through a 
browser. mythbackend can start up without a database and you can then 
set up the database and the rest of MythTV through the browser.

Also included are pages to replace mythweb. Currently these include 
Backend Status, Channel Editor, Program Guide, Recordings, and Upcoming. 
The program guide supports scheduling of recordings, and programs that 
are scheduled are highlighted in the guide. Recordings can be filtered 
and sorted, and various update options are provided.

I will be adding pages for recording rules and videos, and updating the 
recordings and upcoming pages to allow rescheduling from those pages.

I would appreciate it if people can test this and report back any 
issues. I have added support for all capture card types but I cannot 
test most of them as I do not have the hardware or the appropriate TV 
signals. Also the satellite settings that are available with DVB cards 
are extensive and I cannot verify that they are working correctly.

If you find any problems or have questions please report them with a 
comment to this issue
or email me.

The system caters for language translation. Translations have not been 
done yet.
