Clear the client's cache when releasing new versions of MetacatUI
It looks like RequireJS can cache bust with some confirguraiton: http://requirejs.org/docs/api.html#config
Because it's annoying to us and our users when we update or fix the KNB and have to remind them to clear their browser cache to see their bug fixed.

All stylesheets and custom scripts, and most images are now loaded with a URL argument equal to the MetacatUI version. This ensures that users will always see the most recent changes when we update MetacatUI. The metacatUIVersion variable is set on loader.js. The loader.js script itself has a manually set URL argument in index.html but shouldn't have to be changed too often.
