This PR adds three new properties to torus primitive creation.

  • Twist, which simply rotates minor segments
  • Ring Manipulator and Cross Manipulator, which are t and s for supertoroid

Small example of new shapes that can be created with new properties:

Background:
Because "Extra Mesh Objects" add-on isn't shipped with Blender anymore and requires extra step of downloding from extensions platform, it will be useful (especially for offline users) to include its most basic and useful features in core Blender where appropriate, to reduce the need for the add-on. Adding this properties to torus will mean "Twisted Torus" and "Supertoroid" objects can be removed from add-on, which is hosted here as community extension.

But regardless of that, this is very useful feature for creating variaty of primitives, especially for graphic design and motion graphics works.
