Editable nested fields in Writer

Word fields are far more flexible than ODF/Writer fields - to most users, the additional expressiveness doesn't matter, but for some specialized use cases, Writer is limited. Writer had a rudimentary implementation of Word compatible fields for about 10 years, but it never worked well. We have added the ability to round-trip nested Word fields in RTF/DOCX formats, and fixed a bunch of long standing bugs along the way.
