Avoid page reload while editing

It may be worth while to look at the page reload mechanism that is in place for the page editor. In my opinion there is much to be improved.

One of the things that makes it hard to use the page editing interface of Magnolia CMS is the feature that each editing actions causes a page reload. Talking about:
- Adding components
- Deleting components
- Moving components
- Editing components
- Pasting components

Especially on pages with a lot of nested components, especially tabs and accordions, this turns the editing experience sour.

While editing the reload action should be limited to the component or the area. Full page reloads should be optional and configurable.
