Summary: set of controller entries to handle users' (self)registration in turbogears 2

Description: Introduction
        provide ./new, ./edit_user, ./delete_user, ./lost_password functionality, 
        to be imported in any project
        0.5.1 - Unreleased
        * Initial release
        a self-registration module for turbogears2 meant to allow users to register 
        themselves, edit their information, request password reset when lost, and even 
        delete their account.
        this code is heavily based on the registration add-on for turbogears 1, made by 
        patrick lewis.
        this code changed the original add-on by supporting only sqlalchemy (and 
        elixir) models, but not sqlobject ones (which are currently not supported in 
        tg2 anyway), but also as the deployment model: this is an extension module, 
        that may and would better be used independently of any project, however adding 
        a few tables and a controller entry point to the main project. 
        it may also be heavily customized for one project, by copying the registration 
        code to a special location for some specific project.

        this code is released under the mit license.
        as an exception, to the license, i make clear that taking any piece of this 
        code in order to port the original add-on or improve it anyhow should require 
        no special permission and should not need to mention the code came from here.
        how to:
        * usage of the registration module requires the presence of the auth model (say 
        auth=yes in quickstarting your project).
        * in <your_project>/model/, append the following line right under 
        the import of the auth objects (from auth import ...):
        from tgext.registration2.model import *
        * in <your_project>/controllers/<any_controller>.py, import the 
        UserRegistration controller class:
        from tgext.registration2.controllers import UserRegistration
        and, set the access point of the registration module under the access point of 
        the controller of your choice (RootController in our example:
        class RootController(BaseController):
            <registration access point> = UserRegistration()
        * to customize any of the parameters set in the tgext/registration/registration.cfg
        please copy this file anywhere you wish and change any of the given values and 
        set the location of the copied file in development/deployment.ini, in variable 
        registration_config, under [app:main].
        * that's all: in <your site>, you may access any of the registration controller 
        entries at <your site>/<registration access point>
        <registration access point>/ new, edit_user, lost_password and delete_user may 
        be invoked now from any point in your site you may wish.
        what next?
        one of the advantages of maintaining the code independently of any site project 
        is the possibility to improve the code to the benefit of older projects too.
        for now, my intention is to add the following:
        * captcha support, including management of the picture-label pairs.
        * chalenging question support, to be used for lost_password and delete_user.
        * the ability to generate x509 certificates to allow users to autologin (with 
        an appropriate repoze.who plugin).
        * make the tests work.
