Drop ConfirmEdit's AllowConfirmedEmail variable
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

$wgAllowConfirmedEmail is equivalent to $wgGroupPermissions['emailconfirmed']['skipcaptcha'] = true; (see code) so there is no point in it existing; it just makes configuration more complicated. (Presumably the emailconfirmed class did not exist when it was added.) It should be deprecated and eventually removed.
