Implemented: Expand Variables in New User Template

The register script expands now the same variables for NewUserTemplate as the edit script does for WebTopicEditTemplate, namely:

Variable Explanation
%DATE% Current date
%USERNAME% Login name of new user,e.g. "jdoe"
%WIKINAME% WikiName of new user, e.g. "JonDoe"
%WIKIUSERNAME% Web.WikiName of new user, e.g. "Main.JonDoe"
%URLPARAM{"name"}% Expand URL parameters
%NOP{...}% Gets removed. Use it to remove access control from the template topic
%NOP% Gets removed. Use it to prevent search from hitting the template topic

This change for CairoRelease was initiated by Support.NewUserTemplateHasNoNEWWIKINAME.

Is in TWikiAlphaRelease and at TWiki.org.
