Add 'Back to Milestone' link from the Custom Query page

Description

When navigating to the custom query page through the milestone stats query links on a milestone page, there is no link to return to the milestone through selection of a single link. In contrast, if the user navigates to the custom query page by clicking on a milestone stats query link while on the roadmap page, the user can just click the Roadmap entry on the main nav.

In contrast to how the other Back to … contextual navigation links function, I propose that Back to Milestone link only be shown when the user has navigated from the milestone realm.

The other consideration is that the user might land on custom query page by selecting a milestone stats query link displayed on the Roadmap page. So we might need to account for that scenario as well.

Well, I am not making much sense here. In comment:description I proposed that we don't add a contextual navigation link if the user has navigated from the Roadmap page. Or, even if we add a Back to Roadmap contextual navigation link in that scenario, it should not be added when the user navigates to a query from the Reports page or any other way (such as directly entering the URL or linking from wiki markup). This is the way that the Back to Query link on the tickets page functions. In contrast, the Back to Roadmap link is always shown on the milestone page, regardless of whether the user navigated from the Roadmap.

Well, suggesting wontfix here.

The "Back to…" links in the context nav are not a substitute for the Back button (even if defective in some browsers ;-) ). It's rather "back to the list I'm an element of". So from a milestone → back to the roadmap (list of milestones), from a ticket → back to the query/report (list of tickets).

It's harder to see a milestone as a list of custom queries…

That makes sense. I can focus my efforts in more productive places ;)
