Implement smoothed auto handle placement with cyclic extrapolation.

Cyclic extrapolation is implemented as an f-curve modifier, so this
technically violates abstraction separation and is something of a hack.
However without such behavior achieving smooth looping with cyclic
extrapolation is extremely cumbersome.

The new behavior is applied when the first modifier is Cyclic
extrapolation in Repeat or Repeat with Offset mode without
using influence, repeat count or range restrictions.

Implement a new automatic handle algorithm to produce smooth F-Curves.

The legacy algorithm only considers two adjacent points when computing
the bezier handles, which cannot produce satisfactory results. Animators
are often forced to manually adjust all curves.

The new approach instead solves a system of equations to trace a cubic spline
with continuous second derivative through the whole segment of auto points,
delimited at ends by keyframes with handles set by other requirements.

This algorithm also adjusts Vector handles that face ordinary bezier keyframes
to achieve zero acceleration at the Vector keyframe, instead of simply pointing
it at the adjacent point.

Original idea and implementation by Benoit Bolsee <>;
code mostly rewritten to improve code clarity and extensibility.

Trigger FCurve handle recalculation on updates to curve modifiers.

If automatic curve handles are changed to be aware of the Cycles
modifier to provide a smooth loop transition, they have to be updated
when the modifier is added, removed or its options change.

Due to the way code is structured, it seems it requires a helper
link to the containing curve from the modifier object.

force fcurve AUTO handlers to use 1/3 of the distance for smoothness

Note: this is also used by the curve code. The magic number 2.5614f
comes from review 290361776e5858b3903a83c0cddf722b8340e699
