Autofill authenticated user's session settings from Active Directory

Description

This patch adds functionality to retrieve email and name from an Active Directory server for a logged in user if their either their 'Name' and/or 'Email' session settings are blank. Looks for [session] trac.ini flags to enable/disable each.

Dependencies:

NOTE: this patch adds module-level imports in session.py for the two required modules, pywin32 and active_directory. These imports are wrapped inside (1) a platform sanity-check (platform.system() == 'Windows') and (2) each import is within its own try/except. If any of the checks fail, then none of the new code will ever be reached.
