GAE: use user authentication from GAE api

Issue #266 resolved

Users could log in into moin using their google account.


Note: this is only for authentication, we will still store a user profile for the user. I suggest to use the authenticated email address to lookup or create the profile.

    Ideas for implementation:

    • query user_id() from gae User object and store it into moin userprofile as gae_user_id and use it for looking up the user profile later (this will work, even if user changes his email address)
    • query email() from gae User object and update moin userprofile with it
    • use nickname() as aliasname maybe?
