Basic implementation done with commit b263789

A new space tool allows to create Space objects on top of a selected solid shape, or from several selected boundary faces. The Space object remains bound to the boundary object in case they change.

New boundaries can be added later on with the Arch Add tool, even on space objects created from a solid shape.

Existing boundaries can be removed from a Space object with the Arch Remove tool.

Space objects use the "Detailed" display mode to show the horizontal area (taken from a plane crossing the space at its central point) at the center of the space.
