Open, MediumPublic

Description

At the moment, it's a mess of manually generated HTML. We should tidy it up and use FormSpecialPage, because it is indeed a special page with a form.

Rewrited Special:RenameUser to use FormSpecialPage (with OOUI).

I've rewrote this page to use FormSpecialPage with OOUI. I've added warning if user is blocked for indefinite time (can be changed) instead of 'Show block log for user' button. IMO it looks better.

@Sethakill: Hi! This task has been assigned to you a while ago. Could you maybe share an update? Do you still plan to work on this task, or do you need any help?
If you do not plan to work on this task anymore: Please consider removing yourself as assignee (via Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu): That would allow others to work on this (in theory), as others won't think that someone is already working on this. Thanks! :)

@Sethakill: I am resetting the assignee of this task because there has not been progress lately (please correct me if I am wrong!). Resetting the assignee avoids the impression that somebody is already working on this task. It also allows others to potentially work towards fixing this task. Please claim this task again when you plan to work on it (via Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown menu) - it would be welcome. Thanks for your understanding!
