      Description

      Grade letters currently work like this:

      Site preferences are default for:
      Course user preferences which affect : display for graders only

      The problem is that the grade letters need to work in lots of reports/imports/exports and they need to work consistently, like this:

      1. Site settings define overall letter boundaries which act as a default.
      2. Course settings are set on plugin menu under Edit -> Grade Display (each can be site default or some local override). Also here is a course default for "Real / Percentage / Letters / Default"
      3. Grade_item settings have another setting for "Real / Percentage / Letters / Default"

      1 would require a new grade_letters table (set courseid to zero)
      2 would use the same table (set courseid to courseid) for the boundaries, and a config_plugins entry for the grade display
      3) would require a new field on grade_item called "display".

      There needs to be changes in the grade classes too so that these are all resolved correctly.
