Actions with parameters but without dialog

Today I worked the whole day inside the actions framework to implement the missing “detail” required to make lino.modlib.polls usable:

Instead of “action calls with arbitrary arguments” we will probably do “actions with parameters but without window”. Selecting a choice now works… except for the “detail” that it opens a window which the user must confirm.

There is no API change, but a new class attribute lino.core.actions.Action.no_params_window.

Wrote a new tested document The Polls plugin.
