[pmwiki-users] Major rewrite: CodeMirror

I finally managed to get a large enough free-time span to build and
deliver a quite stable new version of the CodeMirror recipe

For the record, this recipe provides the CodeMirror JavaScript text
editor component to PmWiki, enabling both:

* An enhanced page editing experience with pmwiki syntax highlighting,
line numbers and line wrapping,

* A generic syntax highlighting renderer for your source code excerpts.

As pointed out as caveats/known limitation on the recipe page, the
PmWiki language is a very convenient markup set for the user,
therefore writing a syntaxic highlighter for it is rather hard. The
one provided is far from perfect, but should be able to render most of
the language features.

The syntax colors/styles proposed really need to be improved.
Fell free to provide better style definitions.
