 Currently, you can only edit an attachment via the Write Post page.  This
 patch adds a means to "Edit Media" under the Manage section.

 A new file, wp-admin/media.php is added as our media object jumping off
 point like post.php, comment.php, etc.  Eventually, it'd be nice if all
 the delete, upload, edit, etc. links pointed to this file which then
 dispatched to the correct functions/templates.

 We can move this functionality to upload.php if people want. The idea here
 was to be parallel with the rest of our "noun" files. ("medium.php"
 sounded dumb. We could do "attachment.php".)

 {{{get_media_item()}}} is used to output the edit form, but the HTML/CSS
 has been tweaked to be a bit more flexible and a bit less table-centric
 (with negligible changes to the visual output for the iframed content on
 the Write page).

 The basic JS form validation that wp-lists uses has been better abstracted
 and can now be used on any page.

 {{{get_edit_post_link()}}} and friends point to the correct edit form for
 pages, posts, attachments.

 Aditionally, the patch removes some debug code in script-loader.php
 ({{{mt_rand()}}} calls).

 Tested on FF2 only.
