Bug Description

As discussed in the developer meeting, I propose a plain/simple textbox blocktype that doesn't store its content as an artefact. I think that in most cases the text in textboxes does not serve on other pages, so offering a simplified version helps avoid unintentional side effects when views with reusable text boxes are copied.

New blocktype to display a simple text

Bug 1339113: A blocktype to display a plain snipped of text on a page that is
not connected to any artefact and therefore does not cause unintentioned side
effects when content is added on a view that has been copied.

=== How to test ===
1. browse to a portfolio page
2. confirm that the former "text box" name has been changed to "Text"
3. confirm that the general section of the menu also contains the block types of "text" and "note"
4. confirm that both text and notes function as expected

Note: existing pages may have the former title of text box displayed on the page but all new blocks will have the correct names

=== Test Results ===
2. confirmed that the former "text box" name has been changed to "Text" ✔
3. confirmed that the general section of the menu also contains the block types of "text" and "note" ✔
4. confirmed that both text and notes function as expected ✔

Catalyst QA Approved ✔

Changing the display name of 'text box' to note (Bug #1339113)

So as to seperate the 'text' block from the 'note' block

I figured just changing the viewable text from 'text box' to 'note' will
be fine as we have in another occasion changed blog to journal but
still have the info in the db recorded as blog.

I've also replaced the hardcoded 'textbox/note' block option to with
the new 'text' block option at top of chooser list.

And forced the site upgrade to install this new 'text' block.
