#16828: Add filter on initial_meta_boxes for nav menu

 When you create a custom post type with `show_in_nav_menus = true` the
 metabox in Appearance->Menus is hidden to all new users.  This is
 especially annoying for multi-site setups.  The issue is in
 `wp_initial_nav_menu_meta_boxes()` where it sets the initial meta boxes:
 $initial_meta_boxes = array( 'nav-menu-theme-locations', 'add-custom-
 links', 'add-page', 'add-category' );

 I'd settle for a filter on that, but it seems like a more complete fix
 would be to add the filter with a default function hooked into it which
 would add post types with `show_in_nav_menus = true` to the list.
