Adding support for HTML table rendering with datatables.net

As discussed at PyCon DE with Robert Lehmann I propose to add support for datatables.net when rendering HTML tables. That would allow a huge set of features for interacting with HTML tables, like multi-column sorting, column swapping, searching/filtering and tons more.

Datatables.net is written in Javascript and can be configured only in Javascript, so this code needs to be placed either in the global conf.py file if it should be valid for all tables, maybe, or in a special directive/option if it should be applied to a specific table only.

Adding support for the many existing plugins for datatables.net as well might be some challenge, though.
