MultiProvider class

A provider that merges multiple providers into a single linear widget tree. It is used to improve readability and reduce boilerplate code of having to nest multiple layers of providers.

As such, we're going from:

Provider<Foo>.value(
  value: foo,
  child: Provider<Bar>.value(
    value: bar,
    child: Provider<Baz>.value(
      value: baz,
      child: someWidget,
    )
  )
)

To:

MultiProvider(
  providers: [
    Provider<Foo>.value(value: foo),
    Provider<Bar>.value(value: bar),
    Provider<Baz>.value(value: baz),
  ],
  child: someWidget,
)

The widget tree representation of the two approaches are identical.
