Corresponding design task: #113356

This PR addresses the long discussed problems of the Fake User system https://devtalk.blender.org/t/blender-deleted-my-un-assigned-materials-how-is-that-a-feature-fake-user/22715 and https://devtalk.blender.org/t/blender-user-interface-design/505.

It adds an option called "Auto Add Fake User" which, when enabled, automatically adds a Fake User to any new Material, World, Texture, and Geometry Nodes group when it is created, copied or made single-user.

A few design questions remain:

  1. Should it be enabled by default?
  2. The default Material (from the default cube), Grease Pencil Material (when adding a Grease Pencil Monkey) and World don't have a Fake User added to them even when "Auto Add Fake User" is checked. Should that be changed?

Thanks for the patch, but as the design task #113356 discussion showed, this temporary/band-aid solution is not seen as a good way to address the problem, as it partially hides it and does not address the root of the issue.

Help with finalizing agreement and implementing tasks proposed in #61209 and linked ones would be much welcome.
