DEV: Upgrade ACE Editor to 1.4.12, remove extra ACE files (PR #10431)

We do not currently run automated tests, but given that this loads a much smaller subset of the ACE Editor files, I tested this manually for html, scss, sql editors, and operations like editing text, searching, moving text using shortcuts, etc. and it works well.

The file size savings are considerable:

Previously: 245 files, 14.3 Mb Now: 7 files, 0.68 Mb

The upgrade to 1.4.12 also allows us to set placeholders for the ACE Editor inputs, I am planning to use this soon.

Awesome! feel free to merge, I wonder if this fixed the weird cursor issue @lee-dohm noticed when you are zoomed.

Yes, this does fix the cursor issue on Safari indeed.
