Wagtail: allow specifying a container for page rows

      The BlankPage template assumes a container of class container-fluid for the entire page. But the max-width of Bootstrap's container class is nice to have for a lot of layouts, especially ones with text.

      Instead of rows as the top-level collection, it should instead be containers. We'll need a new Page type since this would break existing instances of BlankPage.

      Also, it's useful to be able to define a background for containers that spans the entire page even though the container itself may be fixed width. We could do the following:

      [div class="container-fluid" style="background-color: ..."]
        [div class="container"]

      However, that would result in twice as much padding as usual on the left and right for the doubly nested container (container-fluid and container both define padding-left and padding-right of 15px). Instead I think just having a wrapping div that can be styled will allow setting background colors and images as needed.

      New design
      • Container type is another attribute of rows
      • two types of container (optional, can be left blank): full width and max width
      • has an outer wrapping div for setting a background
      • each container has the following attributes
        • background styles - apply to container wrapper
        • background classes - apply to container wrapper
        • background image - apply to container wrapper
      Use cases
