Add more controls to Lightswitch HTML Client

Currently the Lightswitch HTML Client for LoB apps is excellent, but also very primitive in some regards. Without controls like Tree Views or Data Tables it can be difficult to build even basic data intensive applications with LS. This is made more complicated by that fact that the client exposes only a few hooks for Javascript and HTML injection by default, and tying custom plugins and controls into LS can be surprisingly complex.

In short, it would be a huge boon to LS HTML to add more controls and would expand the use cases of it significantly.

Some controls that would be appreciated:
- TreeView
- Grids/Data Tables
- Panels (the most recent version of jQuery Mobile has this baked in)
- Some sort of navigation control
