[OOTB-hive] Call for contribution: Let's build a comprehensive module of bug patches!

As the original reporter of that script import API enhancement I am glad
this appears still relevant to people, although I don't consider this an
actual bug to be patched. A nuisance, yes, which is why I prepared that
contribution all these years back and which is also why I included
AMD-style module loading in my Nashorn engine module.

I have updated my example project
https://github.com/AFaust/irc-alfresco-patching-samples which I had started
after our discussions yesterday to add demonstrations / support of the
following concepts:
- support for configuring Share placeholder values via
share-global.properties files
- support for configuring Share Log4J logging via module-based
log4j.properties files
- support for configuring Share addons in a method consistent with
Repository-tier modules (in a structure like alfresco/module/xyz/)

I have also added a couple of Surf / Aikau related patches for testing
purposes (all the above has been tested on 5.1).
Additionally, I have included the slf4j-log4j bridge JAR in my Share module
so I don't have to use neither the awkward Commons Logging API nor any
other specific implementation API (I prefer the abstraction SLF4J provides).

@Lutz: Please have a look if you consider the three "support"-concepts I
listed as acceptable for a patch module. Opposed to what we discussed in
IRC, I have not yet created PRs for any of this to avoid pushing things
some people might feel do not belong in such a patch collection.

@all: During the discussions on Wednesday we also touched on the
possibility that such a consolidated patch addon might be put under an
official "Order of the Bee" umbrella, i.e. the main project repository
could be placed inside the GitHub OrderOfTheBee organisation. At least I
consider all the current activities a part of "figuring out how such a
consolidated patch module should work / be maintained".
