Issues when selecting a new featured image on posts with an existing, older featured image

On posts with a featured image that isn't one of the most recent attachments, when clicking the button to choose a new featured image, the existing featured image doesn't appear in the list of attachments, which can be a little confusing and inconsistent.

It seems like there should be a way to prime the initial attachment collection with an arbitrary attachment when the media popup is loaded.

In this same scenario, the "Attachment Details" sidebar is also a little wonky. There's only a single field to enter a title and nothing else.

And just to slip a feature request in, it'd be nice to be able to double click an attachment to select it and close the popup in situations where a single attachment is needed (like selecting a featured image).

The bug is fixed. All that's left here is a minor enhancement (adding the selected attachment to the library).

Patch adds the selected attachment to the beginning of the media library if it doesn't exist within the attachments the library has loaded so far. We may also want to scroll to the selected attachment (if it does exist) when the dialog is opened, but that is, yet again, more gravy.

When settting a featured image, move the currently selected image to the beginning of the library if it doesn't exist within the attachments loaded so far.
