WIP: Text selection POC

Jacob Schatz requested to merge text-select-poc into master

@dzaporozhets @DouweM @rspeicher @iamphill

I made a quick little jQuery plugin to handle the text selection and showing a selection tool above it per my feature request in issue #15100 (closed)

We can grab the selected text from this and do whatever we want. We can `$('.some-text-area').textpopup(). And add buttons and listen to their callbacks.


The idea of this POC is not to demonstrate the perfect icons or colors. All the icons and colors obviously need to change.

The idea is to demonstrate how I believe we could take advantage of this UI/UX paradigm to allow people to copy text in different ways in different contexts.
