    [TASK] Assimilate nested content feature from FED
    This makes Flux the carrier of the nested content feature. After
    installing this you must must from extension config update DB,
    then manually run this query to migrate existing content:
    UPDATE tt_content SET tx_flux_column = tx_fed_fcecontentarea
    If you have custom FCEs all calls to any fed:fce, fed:page or
    fed:flexform ViewHelper (any of then, including "content" and
    "rendercontent" which have now been ported to Flux) these must
    be change to the Flux counterparts for your FCEs to work after
    this change.
    Note: a change is coming to the FED git master very soon, disabling
    these same features and removing the ViewHelpers in order to
    accomodate the hard and fast deprecation which will be done in
    FED 1.4.11. Until then your content elements may continue to fill
    data in the tt_content.tx_fed_fcecontentarea field in the DB.

    [TASK] Migration to FieldProvider pattern
    Changes the internal logic that is rendering FlexForm structures
    from the previous XML-to-TCA to a direct TCA approach.
    Briefly described this change...
    * Completely removes the intermediate XML step and all XML templates
    * Removes all partial templates previously used to render field XML
    * Introduces FieldProviders which function similarly to ConfigurationProviders
    * Improves performance slightly by skipping two expensive rendering steps
    * Streamlined a classes and viewhelpers
    Also contained are a few additional ViewHelpers and some basic bugfixes.
    Apologies for the combined commit; after working on this for three months
    it was too complicated to split this into smaller pieces.
    Note: fixes #37190 but cannot guarantee other extensions will not
    re-specify tt_content.colPos as something other than signed smallint(6).
