Use Case: frequent line simplification with specific tolerances (in metres) during an edit session on geographic data.

  • work in canvas CRS units even if layer CRS is different
  • persistent tolerance configuration (what does the number mean in the current slider anyway?)
  • click on line to instantly simplify
  • option to act on selection with multiple features

[FEATURE] Overhaul of simplify feature tool (fixes #11514)

This commit itself just removes dead code, but the previous commits bring:
- OTF reprojection support
- use can specify exact tolerance (not just non-sense relative value)
- tolerance can be specified either in map units or layer units
- tolerance settings are stored in settings
- simplify multiple features at once (drag a rectangle instead of just clicking)
- support for multi-part features
- statistics about reduction of the number of vertices
