CAPTCHA group exceptions only apply to edits

With these settings:

$wgGroupPermissions['sysop' ]['skipcaptcha'] = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['createaccount'] = true; // Special:Userlogin&type=signup

Shouldn't a sysop, when logged in, be able to create accounts without being prompted for the CAPTCHA?

Adds a check for allowing a user to skip the CAPTCHA when creating a new account if he has the skipcaptcha right.

I'm surprised none of the people who create accounts for others on Wikipedia have complained about this.

Probably not the most elegant fix, but it works. *crosses fingers*
