I've listed most of the stuff removed above (might have missed some) but they are all editor or editor files that are no longer used and should definitely not be used. There's actually more in there but I've run out of time.

To test - make sure it builds and that the back office works, test all dialogs, test all TinyMCE buttons and dialogs.

Builds, trees (partial views, scripts...) work, publish dialog works, RTE macros & images work, dialogs work, could not break things... looks good.
