NEW feature - quick entry of new users

We've added a new feature making it easier to set up meetings and brainstorming sessions: new user accounts can now be created from the pages for setting up meetings and sessions, without having to set up the users on the User List first.

At the bottom of the list of attendees is a new hyperlink labelled "Create a new user". This asks for minimal information - e-mail address, first name, last name, initials - and then creates the user and adds them to the participants for the meeting/brainstorming session.

The user is given an automatic random password which is sent out to them by e-mail (saving the amount of information which you need to provide manually). The user also gets a very basic set of privileges on the system - these can be altered at your leisure via the normal User List.
