[annotator-dev] Allow doubleclick events to pass through

You might look into simply destroying the annotator before you go into edit
mode and reloading it after.

Depending on how you instantiated it (either with the jQuery plugin or
directly) it'll be `annotator.destroy()` or
`$(element).annotator('destroy')`. The former works better, IIRC.
