Direct Beaker integration

Description (last modified by Christopher Allan Webber)

We should bundle Beaker directly into GNU MediaGoblin. Right now
it's set up as middleware in server.ini, but this isn't ideal for
the following reasons:

-  Beaker is in no way optional middleware. It's absolutely
   essential for launching the application.
-  Things like ./bin/gmg shell don't give you a fully functioning
   application because they just read mediagoblin.ini which doesn't
   contain information on how to set up Beaker, so it is never set up
-  We need to have a paste config in order to launch tests
-  Complicates writing scripts that interface with mediagoblin So
   here's a solution.
-  Create a ['beaker'] section in mediagoblin.ini and
-  Add a utility to create the beaker instance based on the
   ['beaker'] section of the config
-  Use that utility in MediaGoblinApp.**init**() and push it into

Now that we've added
` <>`_
we should probably put this in mediagoblin/init/ ?

It turns out that middleware might be the only reasonable way to do
the session. Nonetheless, I tend to think we need to move the
configuration of the session middleware over to mediagoblin.ini
instead of paste.ini... you simply can't access some things via
stuff like ./bin/gmg shell right now the way things are because the
session middleware hasn't been set up. So this will take some
careful thinking and I might actually tackle the caching setup
stuff separate from the session stuff while I think it through.
(The cache stuff doesn't so much need to be set up as a

Wait, this shouldn't be closed really. #507 is done, but you still need to set up beaker with paste for mediagoblin to work at present. Reopening.

Closing this as WONTFIX; we removed beaker.
