Fake the deepcategory behavior by just treating it like incategory on the test systems

**Acceptance Criteria*

  • On the wmde-uca test wiki, whenever the keyword deepcategory is used, incategory is used instead
  • The behavior does not change on any production wiki


  • We would probably need a flag for the test systems
  • will need to touch the config file, the place in the code where deepcategory is actually called, and needs to be activated on the test system
