Hi all

There where a few spams getting throgh in ffmpegs trac in the last 2
It was suggested in #ffmpeg-devel to add some custom anti spam
meassures and ask for the project name during register.
trac doesnt support doing that in the current release

There are also hundreads of bots trying to register per hour since

So ive added a very basic pre registration page that asks 2 trivial
This is implemented purely at apache level so should be entirely
unaffected by trac upgrades and also could probably be added in front
of any other pages needing spam protection.
Furthermore the preregistration page can of course be changed and
extended if anyone wants and submits patches ...

If this causes any problems please report them

I have often repented speaking, but never of holding my tongue.
