Allow wpReason to be passed to Special:UserRights

Description:
It would be convenient to be able to build a link to Special:UserRights with the reason field prefilled.

According to Amalthea, this isn't possible at the moment...

Because it's coded that way: SpecialUserrights.php, line 456 in r77562:
Xml::input( 'user-reason', 60, false, array( 'id' => 'wpReason', 'maxlength' => 255 ) ) .

Fixed in r81309.
The parameter is named "user-reason" as for the form submission

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
