oEmbed should be removed from the UI -- admin (editor)

ENV: WP 2.9-beta-1 ++ (TRUNK r12296)

The current "Add media file from URL" starts with an "Embed a picture from a web site that supports oEmbed. (Aside, no reason to intro the term "picture" to the UI)

This disrupts the current work flow and creates a cognitive burden on the user -- "what's an oEmbed".

For 2.9 (already in beta), we should not include no UI for oEmbed, because I suspect it's too late to do it well -- will take some trial and error. Will open additional ticket(s) with recommendations.

The good news is the behavior is succinctly exposed by putting an oEmbed URL on it's own line in the editor.
