 xProfile: re-architecture profile field types and de-duplicate the
 templating and validation logic to make it easier for core and plugins to
 add new profile field types.

 Until now, it's been pretty hard to add new types of profile field to
 BuddyPress. There are a couple of plugins that do a good job, but
 BuddyPress makes it much harder than it should be because, historically,
 we've hardcoded values and checks in templates throughout the project. For
 example, profile field templating was duplicated in the registration
 template, the member/profile/edit template, in parts of the wp-admin
 xProfile screens, and in the new wp-admin extended profile editor.

 This change implements a new approach that creates a class for each
 profile field type; selectbox, textbox, textarea, and so on. They all
 share an abstract base class `BP_XProfile_Field_Type` which consolidates a
 lot of special behaviour that had been added to BuddyPress over the years
 (e.g. some fields accept null values, some accept multiple default
 values), and adds true field value validation. Unit tests are included.

 We've also implemented a new "Numbers" field type with these changes. It
 behaves much the same as a regular textbox field does, but it only accepts

 Fixes #5220 and #4694
