The viscosity panel was confusing for users because viscosity
is defined by the base and exponent properties in the Diffusion panel.

What this setting actually does is use a special solver algorithm that is designed for high viscosity liquids.
See 635694c0ff for details.

The below changes are designed to better represent this to the user.

  • Move the "Viscosity" Panel to a sub panel of "Diffusion"
  • Rename "Viscosity" to "High Viscosity Solver" to better represent what this property does
  • Update use_viscosity tooltip to better explain that this uses a different solver algorithm.

@Blendify could you include an image? It makes review easier (that is valid for any commit that changes UI).
