FS#13 - Rework spooling

Right now exports and printing work via a dedicated "spool" that is nearly impossible to manage sanely.

I'd like to see the spool go away, in favor of allowing exports/printing to work against an album in its entirety. We can create a "special album" (like the Trash folder, for example) to make the UI work a bit simpler, but instead of "spooling" an item, we'll just link it into that special spool album.

This also lets us manage the spool directly.

Spool album added, treated as special in the album list now.

Still need to delete all references to the old spooler and replace with the album-specific insert.

Then update various UI stuffs, replace "print" and "export" links with "spool", and add links to "export spool" and "print spool", etc.

Then update the bulk updater to work against albums (and the spooler!)

spool deleter added.
spool export cleaned up.
spool printer cleaned up.

still needs UI work -- custom handling when viewing the 'spool' folder, and links to print/export/etc from the toplevel spool page. Change how the print/export buttons work everywhere else too.

Photo.php needs to be updated -- elimianate the "print" button; renaming it to "add to spool".

Spool display no longer displays "add to spool" button. :)


* photo.php -- replace "print" button with "add to spool"
* hide "spool bar" on album/folder/search result pages when spool is empty
* bulk updater working against spool
* When spooler is empty, automatically redirect somewhere appropriate.

photo.php updated properly, and bulk update knows about the spool. That leaves a couple of cosmetic issues, but all in all, the spool is functionally complete.
