      Description

      Via the Moodle interface we allow to disable features of the app. Right now admins can disable any feature, including modules, we should allow to disable the new blocks we are creating / supporting.

      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockActivityModules (activity_modules)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockSiteMainMenu (site_main_menu)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockMyOverview (myoverview)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockTimeline (timeline)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockRecentCourses (recentcourses)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockStarredCourses (starredcourses)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockRecentActivities (recentactivities)
      CoreBlockDelegate_AddonBlockGrade (grade) -> Not implemented yet, probably the name can change.
