Enhancements to the display of extended patron attributes in circ

Work in progress repository: No URL given.
Description: Extended patron attributes are a great tool: it provides nice flexibility in the information one wants to manage in the patron's record. But as of version 3.2 we don't have any way to manage how this information will be displayed once entered.

For some extended attributes, it might be useful to have them display in circ/circulation.pl, in the Check Out tab, which is arguably the most important tab in this page, rather than at the end of the Details page.

This RFC proposes:

  • when looking up a patron from members-home.pl and having one and only one result, one should go straight to the member.pl, not have a table with 1 result only;
  • on circ/returns.pl page when I click on a patron's name (link), I should not go to koha/members/moremember.pl?borrowernumber=XXX but to koha/circ/circulation.pl?borrowernumber=XXX
  • to add a field to admin/patron-att-types.pl?op=edit
