jQuery UI fragmentation breaks plugins

[15711] breaks some plugins. Previously, jQuery UI Widgets was included in out jQuery UI core. Now it's separate. So plugins that enqueued UI core expecting to get UI Widgets will break.

Conservative move would be to recombine them as they existed in WP 3.0.1. Alternatively, we could make an enqueue of UI core also enqueue Widgets, so that we don't have to keep remembering to combine them when we upgrade.

Turns out that the new jQuery UI widget factory has some breaking changes (according to jQuery UI 1.8 changelog), which makes breaking it out into its own file reasonable. So for real back-compat, we'd have to bundle an old version of jQuery UI (and an old version of jQuery). Not realistic. Plugins will just have to be updated.

I'll make an announcement on wpdevel.
