[Mapbender-dev] Mapbender elements as jQuery plugins

Hi there,

currently, Mapbender creates jQuery plugins for each application element.

As of version 1.8, jQuery UI provides its widget factory in an 
individual file, and it's a powerful tool to create stateful widgets. 
Maybe we should use it, we would have another solid code base to build 
upon, and would save the documentation time. And we will have it 
included in Mapbender 3.x anyway. I would love to use it as we still 
have no elements in our Mapbender 3 core.

Check it out [1][2] and let me know what you think
