#1112: Site Cloner: Scale to support hundreds of sites

 Currently the Site Cloner is limited to 50 sites, because more than that
 would not be easily manageable by the user, and could have performance
 issues. There are almost 500 sites on WordCamp.org, though, so we need a
 way to allow users to find a small number of relevant sites to consider.

 We can probably exclude a lot of camps off the bat, and cut down on the
 number we need to manage. Camps that meet the following criteria probably
 won't be desirable by users:

 * Have the Coming Soon plugin enabled, since we know they're not done
 building the theme
 * Older than 2 or 3 years, since the design is probably no longer modern
 * Any ideas for others?

 Once that's done, there should definitely be a search feature, similar to
 Core's Theme Switcher, for the use case when  there's a particular city
 that the user has in mind, and they just want to quickly find it.

 From there, we can add the following filters to narrow down the list:

 * Year the camp occurred in
 * Site theme
 * Custom CSS preprocessor

 It'd also be nice to have these additional filters, but it's a lower

 * Colors used in theme
 * Number of sessions
 * Number of attendees

 For the colors, maybe there's a library out there that will process the
 screenshot we already have and tell us the most commonly used 2-3?

 See [https://github.com/ryelle/WordCamp-Style-Import/issues/4 the original
 discussion] in the old development repo.
