[openstack-dev] [Horizon] Moving _conf and _scripts to dashboard

I'm probably not understanding the nuance of the question but moving the
_scripts.html file to openstack_dashboard creates some circular
dependencies, does it not? templates/base.html in the horizon side of the
repo includes _scripts.html and insures that the javascript needed by the
existing horizon framework is present.

_conf.html seems like a better candidate for moving as it's more closely
tied to the application code.
