"bzr help configuration" looks awful

Bug Description

The configuration help topic has a 3 or 4-level deep ReST markup tree, but it's nearly illegible when viewed from the command line; the output just looks totally randomly ordered.

One approach would be to just strip out the layering and describe each setting one after the other. We can either edit the text file, or move them into internal metadata and then generate something better.

See also bug 747050 for getting per-option help.

Once the fix for bug #747050 land, the help for the registered options should be removed from help_topics/configuration.txt and the output for 'bzr help configuration' consolidated from the registered options.
