Eliminate Mochikit from mahara.js

Bug Description

Mahara currently includes MochiKit and JQuery. Annoyingly, they both use the $() function quite a bit, and this inevitably causes us problems.

Mochkit is old, and everything it does can also be done by jQuery, so we should try to refactor it away to save us future development headaches.

Testing the patch https://reviews.mahara.org/#/c/5618/ I was able to replicate the issue with the Resume Interests page that Charlie described here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1323920/comments/6

But rebasing the patch resolved that issue, so I think it was an unrelated bug.

Some of these files aren't loaded on any pages, some (ie. debug.js)
are no longer necessary with modern debugging tools, and some have
been replaced by Bootstrap functionality
