Extend convert-constants support for dicts

This enhances convert-constants to not flatten dicts completely, but
also generate a so-called association list for them.

This allows either direct use of the 'lookup' function, or (for
performance) conversion to Data.Map and optimised lookup later....

Enhance convert-constants list generation

While looking at the hypervisor types in Constants.hs, I saw that the
'hyperTypes' list is using strings instead of names. This is due to
the fact that we require the entire elements in the list to be
identified (homogeneous lists), but the string "xen-pvm" is declared...

convert-constants: also export constants

Since these will be needed for Haskell's implementation of query2.

Implement support for multi-module export

This add support for exporting constants from multiple modules (as
opposed to hard-coding constants), and also makes the output more
readable by skipping things we know for sure we don't want to convert
(as opposed to things we would like to but don't know how to...

Implement reverse mapping of values to names

This adds a bit of dumb mapping of values to names, while trying to be
safe. This is the best we can do without resorting to parsing or
interpreting ASTs.

The difference in the output is:

Add support for RE patterns to convert constants

This is a trivial conversion.

Add support for lists/frozensets in convert-constants

Unfortunately, we only support lists of simple types, and not even
lists of tuples. If we actually needed those, it would be possible to
implement them, with a bit more complexity in the converter.

Improve convert-constants to handle dictionaries

The two main drawbacks for convert-constants are the fact that it
can't handle sets/frozensets (mainly due to the fact that I don't know
how useful this would be to the Haskell code) and that it cannot
export dictionaries....

Fix some issues in htools apidoc generation

First, auto-generated files were not processed if HsColour thus the
'source' link in Haddock documentation was dangling.

Second, we document the original Python constant name in the
Ganeti.Constants source, so that it's easily retrievable (as opposed...

Implement conversion of Python constants to Haskell

With the merge of the repositories, we can now auto-generate the code
for Haskell constants from the Python code.

Currently this only handles the basic types (strings and
integers). Handling containers such as lists and dictionaries is only...
