[FFe] The Checkbox UI needs a way to be customised

checkbox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Because Checkbox is a multi-purpose test tool that is designed to be used in
a variety of different scenarios, it needs a way to customise the UI for various purposes. This FFe proposes to introduce a system of configuration files which will modify the look and behaviour of the UI.

Note that there are no *actual* config files introduced here, just the mechanism that reads them and customises the UI accordingly. We want this FFe because it is tied to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/checkbox/+bug/1302615

This feature is considered beneficial as it allows users of Checkbox to customise it to their own purposes and make it suitable for their testing needs.

Testing that has been performed as of now:

- Package builds
- Package installs on Trusty
- UI customisations work and no noticable regressions occur in regular use

affects: checkbox-gui → checkbox (Ubuntu)
summary: - The Checkbox UI needs a way to be customised
