Communal/collaborative languages now possible at CALS

Last Friday and Saturday I finally found some time to add
features to CALS. (This also lead to error-messages while I was
adding stuff as I still work directly on the running server.)

1. There is now a halfway state between a language being
    editable by all and only being editable by the adder. A lang
    can now have editors. Editors can edit a lang but not
    add/remove editors.
2. It is now also possible to "hand over" control of a
    language to someone else. Being the one to add a language is
    now less important, as the rights to control a language (and
    add/remove editors) now falls to the manager (which is a bit
    of a silly name, please suggest something better). The
    person who adds a language automatically becomes its
    manager, but since the manager can set somebody else as
    manager it is therefore possible to add a language on behalf
    of somebody else now.

That said, I would like to hand over "managership" of Klingon
and Esperanto to somebody more suitable, like anyone that
actually knows them beyond being able to say "hello" and "I
don't really speak X"...
