A hacked version of SpecialListusers to list last 1% of accounts

Having a new user list seemed so easy, I decided to make one. This is a
stripped down version of SpecialListusers with a slightly different query
designed to catch only the last 1% of registered accounts and show them in
descending order of registration. Maybe now we can have new games of spot the
Willy or other troll before their rampages begin?

As is generally the case, I do not have access to a working version of
Mediawiki, so I have never tested this code. Hope it works. Seemed fairly
trivial though.

I support the addition of this feature. This could be very useful for spotting
vandals and wouldn't seem to be prone to abuse.

There's an extension in CVS for adding a log of user creations to Special:Log

Support inclusion. Useful for Willyfighting.

This is useful, but it may not be enough as a Willy-repellant, because the Willy
uses appropriately "aged" sleeper accounts that may drop off the top 1% list. I
think in the long run a user list sorted by account creation time would be more
flexible. See the related RfE I've posted here:

Aevar seems to have installed his log, so this is done now.
