repair: determine what upgrade will do

This commit is rather large. It started off as multiple commits
but I couldn't figure out a good way to split up the functionality
while still conveying the overall strategy. To the reviewer, I
apologize.

This commit introducts a ton of functionality around determining
how a repository can be upgraded.

The first code you'll see is related to repository requirements and
updates. There are no less than 5 functions returnings sets of
requirements that control upgrading. Why so many functions?
Mainly extensions. These would ideally be module variables. But
extensions will need to inject themselves into the upgrade process.
And if you are going to make 1 set extensible, you might as well
make them all extensible.

Astute readers will see that we don't support "manifestv2" and
"treemanifest" requirements in the upgrade mechanism. I don't have
a great answer for why other than this is a complex set of patches
and I don't want to deal with the complexity of these experimental
features just yet. We can teach the upgrade mechanism about them
later, once the basic upgrade mechanism is in place.

The "upgradefindimprovements" function introduces a mechanism to
return a list of improvements that can be made to a repository.
Each improvement is effectively an action that an upgrade will
perform. Associated with each of these improvements is metadata
that will be used to inform users what's wrong and what an
upgrade will do.

Each "improvement" is categorized as a "deficiency" or an
"optimization." TBH, I'm not thrilled about the terminology and
am receptive to constructive bikeshedding. The main difference
between a "deficiency" and an "optimization" is a deficiency
is always corrected (if it deviates from the current config) and
an "optimization" is an optional action that goes above and beyond
to improve the state of the repository (usually by requiring more
CPU during upgrade).

Our initial set of improvements identifies missing repository
requirements, a single, easily correctable problem with
changelog storage, and a set of "optimizations" related to delta
recalculation.

The main "upgraderepo" function glues all of this code together.
It verifies that the repository is capable of being upgraded by
looking at the state of current and proposed requirements and
every difference therein. It then queries for the list of
improvements and determines which of them will run based on the
current repository state and user arguments. A non-trivial amount
of code is required to print all the improvements and what
actions will be taken by an upgrade. Some of this is factored into
inline functions to facilitate use in a subsequent commit.

I went through numerous iterations of the output format before
settling on a ReST-inspired definition list format. (I used
bulleted lists in the first submission of this commit and could
not get it to format just right.) Even with the various iterations,
I'm still not super thrilled with the format. But, this is a debug*
command, so that should mean we can refine the output without BC
concerns.

Rounding out the code is a series of new tests.
