Refactoring notifications to more cleanly hook into application

Right now, notifications' tooling are kind of "special case"'ed into the application. See especially:

    template_env.globals = hook_transform(
        'template_global_context', template_env.globals)

    ## Notifications stuff is not yet a plugin (and we're not sure it will be),
    ## but it needs to add stuff to the context.  This is THE WRONG WAY TO DO IT
    from mediagoblin import notifications
    template_env.globals['get_notifications'] = notifications.get_notifications
        'get_notification_count'] = notifications.get_notification_count
        'get_comment_subscription'] = notifications.get_comment_subscription

    if exists(locale):
        SETUP_JINJA_ENVS[locale] = template_env

    return template_env

This isn't nice... as far as I can tell, there's no reson for notifications to not be a plugin though? That would fix the issue of hardcoding these utilities into the template context.

Alternately maybe if there are some plugins that are so core they should always be on and might as well be core, but it's cleaner to use the template machinery, maybe we could provide a way to have a "always loaded" set of "plugins"... even though they're soldered into the outlet ;)
