Remove all extension interfaces, merge them into View/Document

Waqar Ahmed requested to merge work/doc-interface-remove into master

The interfaces were uneeded complexity without any purpose. With this change all of them are removed and the code is merged into view and document respectively. As a benefit:

  • makes the api more discoverable imo
  • easier to extend than adding V2 classes
  • easier to use, no need to qobject_cast uselessly
  • no more virtual signal hacks
  • can use PMF style connects now
  • removes multiple inheritance, flattens the code
  • less code, less TUs, faster compiles
