Generate and deliver source maps for the admin UI assets

Description

Modern browser development tools are amazing, but they are almost impossible to use with the miinified JavaScript and CSS assets the admin UI delivers. Of course minification is important for performance, but the ability to properly debug is not to be discounted, either.

Fortunately, there is this thing called a "source map" that most JavaScript and CSS source transformation tools and transpilers can generate these days, which gives the browser a mapping from the minified code back to the original sources, so that it can for example display these in the debugger tab of the browser developer tools, and even let you step through it and look at the variables currently in scope.
