Add new style project planning
This implements the planning phase of the new nix-style package build and install system. In particular it includes the calculation of the nix-style package ids by hashing all the package configuration. Project planning is separated from project building. The planning phase starts with finding the packages in the project and then solving. We solve without looking at the installed packages in the store. This makes everything more deterministic. The only installed packages the solver looks at are the globally installed ones. This approach also means we don't have any need of solver options like --reinstall or --avoid-reinstalls etc. The bulk of the planning phase is elaboration. We take the project configuration and the solver's InstallPlan and elaborate the latter into an ElaboratedInstallPlan. This is intended to contain all the details needed for the build phase. For example all the "setup" command flags are calculated directly from the elaborated plan. The building phase is then intended to be much simpler and free of much logic or policy. All of the complicated logic and policy is supposed to be in the planning phase. This should also make things a lot easier to debug, we can look at the plan we calculate and see if we're producing the right build instructions, rather than debugging based on the actions we end up executing. Doing all the planning up front is also crucial to calculating nix-style package hashes. This means we have the package ids up front. This then allows us to have another up-front phase where we improve the plan by replacing source packages with installed packages from the store. All of this stuff is done in the Rebuild monad, with a few levels of caches, so most of the time we can avoid recomputing the plan. In particular we want to avoid re-running the solver unless we have to. There are still quite a number of TODOs, which are categorised. (cherry picked from commit 2d065c8c)
