Fix to jQuery TinyMCE plugin

Hey everyone,

Another quick fix for Infusion 1.1:

We have a very simple little plugin for invoking TinyMCE using a  
friendly jQuery style. It's pretty bare bones, but every other plugin  
I encountered in the wild simply didn't work. This one does.

However, it had a small bug that caused it to throw an error when  
included in an Infusion custom build when TinyMCE wasn't already  
linked into the page. I've fixed this issue, and updated Inline Edit's  
dependency declaration to include it in a custom build.

Next steps: our manual tests for rich text Inline Edit depend on both  
FCKEditor and TinyMCE, so we include both in our repository. I'd love  
to get rid of this code and link against a version in a CDN or other  
web-accessible location instead. If anyone has a few spare cycles to  
pick up this easy task, please go for it.

Following that, it would be great to promote our drop down and rich  
text Inline Edit example pages from the manual tests to full-fledged  
quick-start examples.

Fodder for the 1.1 bug parade,
