[TYPO3-core] Migrating the system extension manuals to ReStructured Text

I have discussed with the TYPO3 6.0 RM team about migrating all system
extension manuals to ReST. This would entail the following:
- migrating the manuals themselves
- changing the EM to have links pointing to the rendered docs online
- provide a fallback when someone has no internet connection to view the
raw ReST files in the TYPO3 BE
The changes would apply to the new-new EM. I wanted to post this here so
that you could ask questions and express worries.
On the Doc Team side we are confident that we will be ready with a full
rendering chain - including for system extension manuals - by the time
6.0 is released.
It would be good if the new-new EM provided hooks for things such as
extra documentation links and such. I'm thinking that the Documentation
Team could provide extensions related to documentation that enable
things like linking to other formats (PDF, for example) and downloading
such resources for offline viewing. But as we have no PDF rendering yet
(only experimental) we can't implement such a feature now. Thus it would
be good to have possibilities for extensions.
