Bug 14610 - Add ability to place article requests in Koha - Update database

Article Requests are somewhat similar to holds, but are not requests for
an item to check out. Instead, article requests are requests for a
photocopy of a particular section of a book ( most often ). This is very
common in academic libraries where researchers may request a copy of a
single article found in a journal.

This patch set adds the ability to place article requests in Koha. It
allows the control of what can be requested via the circulation rules.
Since article requests of electronic resources are not outside the realm
of possibility, the feature will check not only the items for
requstability, but the record itself as well ( i.e. both items.itype and
biblio.itemtype ).

Article requests can be placed for patrons from the opac and staff
intranet and can be viewed in most areas where holds are viewed ( e.g.
patron details, record details, etc ).

There is a script to view article requests in progress within the
circulation module. Article requests can be Open ( i.e. new ), In
Processing, Completed, or Canceled. The status of a given request can be
updated from this script.

Test Plan:
1) Apply the patch set
2) Run updatedatabase.pl
3) Enable the system preference ArticleRequests
4) Set up some required fields in:
    ArticleRequestsMandatoryFields
    ArticleRequestsMandatoryFieldsItemsOnly
    ArticleRequestsMandatoryFieldsRecordOnly
5) Edit your circ rules, set article requests to 'yes' for something
6) Test the ability to add an article request from the opac ( required fields
enforced )
7) Test the ability to add an article request from the staff interface (
required fields no enforced )
8) Note you can choose item level or record level requests
9) Change the rule to "record only"
10) Repeat 6 and 7
11) Note you cannot choose items
12) Change the rule to "item only"
13) Repeat 6 and 7
14) Note you must choose an item
15) Note that the 'new request' message is queued for each new request
16) Browse to /cgi-bin/koha/circ/article-requests.pl
17) Note requests are split by pickup branch
18) Test slip printing via the "Print slip" action
19) Process request vai "Process request" action
20) Note an email notice is queued for patron
21) Refresh /cgi-bin/koha/circ/article-requests.pl
22) Note request has moved to "processing" tab.
23) Complete request with "Complete request" action
24) Note message is queued for patron
25) Cancel a request, add cancelation note.
26) Note message is queued for patron
