  Delete SAML IdP in the admin area

Status in Mahara:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  When you add an IdP to a SAML auth for an institution, you can add new
  metadata, but you cannot remove metadata that you don't want to use
  anymore. There should be a way of doing that.

  We need to keep in mind that multiple institutions can use the same
  base metadata but have different values in their specific setup. Thus,
  a simple "Delete this" wouldn't work as the metadata would then also
  be deleted for other institutions.

  Possible solutions that I can see:

  1. Display a list of all metadata providers on Plugins -> SAML and
  include which institutions use a particular metadata. If none use it,
  display the "Delete" icon and allow it to be deleted (similar to the
  SmartEvidence page under Extensions -> SmartEvidence). When clicking
  "Delete", a confirmation step should be there though before
  permanently deleting the metadata.

  2. If a certain metadata is not used anymore, remove it automatically
  via cron after a few minutes.

  I prefer 1 as that gives more control to a site admin and also quickly
  shows her in which institutions which SAML metadata is used, which we
  currently don't have.
