Summary0017828: Replace '|' usages with appropriate constants
Description

We use '|' in a lot of places in the code for different purposes. For example, as a separator when creating versions, categories, and for possible values of custom fields. Each of these cases should have a constant that should be used in the appropriate places. For example:

VERSIONS_SEPARATOR
CATEGORIES_SEPARATOR
CUSTOM_FIELD_VALUES_SEPARATOR

A more specific case of this was suggested by @dregad at the following PR:
https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/pull/533

regarding custom fields:
storing the separator itself in database (custom_field table, possible_values field)
may be a problem itself, since changing the CUSTOM_FIELD_VALUES_SEPARATOR at a given time, it would break the stored values.
probably better to store values in databse as an array, like its done with config options.
and then use the separator character only for presentation
