consider extending statistics page to cover per-schedConf rather than per-year

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
The current statistics page provides statistics in a year-to-year format per each scheduled conference. The year-to-year format is a little misleading, and could probably be done away with entirely at a per-scheduled-conference level, as the more important numbers here would be per scheduled conference.
It should also be clarified that the year identifier as it currently stands refers specifically to the calendar year, not that particular year's scheduled conference, as might be inferred (esp. if the Conference Manager is distinguishing conferences by year).
There may be a need for year-to-year statistics at the conference website level, however, whereby continual or per-year counting of the number of submissions received would be useful.
Thinking about this a little further, I'd propose the following:
- Move the stats & reports link from each scheduled conference to the CM's General Management section;
- from the Stats & Reports page, include year-to-year statistics, similarly as what is displayed for individual scheduled conferences, but inclusive of all conferences;
- also include a link or display for each scheduled conferences stats, with year not a factor.
Removed the date limits for now. Suggest pioneering better stats with report plugins, as we don't really know what's necessary yet. For now, stats apply to each sched conference and can be provided to users on About for the full sched conf.
