#211 Support map notes

Feature (410)

Create a tool that allows management of on-map notes.

Notes are designated by an icon on the map, which when
clicked pops up a text editor with the associated content.

New notes are added by clicking in a location that does
not have a note.

The notes dialog will have a 'Delete' button (with
associated confirmation dialog) that will remove the
note from the map.

Changes to a map note must be propagated to all other

Notes are only visible by GM players.

    I was thinking that we implement this using a token. We
    could then add notes (see tracker 1440059) to the token
    which could show up as tool tips, or be viewed through the
    note editor for the token. Hiding the token would keep the
    data from the other users, or the token can be made visible
    so that the players could also see this data. Since we would
    be using the note facilities built into the token, which
    include control of who can see what, it would be possible
    for the GM to see one set of text for the tooltip and the
    user's to see another.

    Certainly sounds like a simple solution. Let me think about
    it for a bit to let it digest. I was originally thinking
    something similar to, but not quite the same as tokens.
    Perhaps having a Map section in the left panel, which would
    let you manage notes, properties, triggers, and the like.
    Just need to decide if using tokens supports all the
    features, but doesn't require unneccessary clutter on the token.
