Email verification and forgot password verification tokens should expire

Description (last modified by Christopher Allan Webber)

Email verification should expire after 30 days and forgot password
verification should expire after 7.

Things that should be done:

-  These fields should be added but not required
-  Views should be modified to add these expiration fields when
   adding the tokens
-  Views should be modified to check the expiration fields before
-  A migration should be added...
   -  fields without verification keys should just have the
      email\_verification\_expires and/or fp\_verification\_expires set
      to None
   -  fields with verification keys should set them to a timedelta
      from today

You can set these fields via a timedelta:


    >>> import datetime
    >>> + datetime.timedelta(days=10)
    datetime.datetime(2011, 7, 4, 8, 41, 8, 502139)

If email verification expires, the account should be deleted.
Either automatically, or by some "gmg cleanup" command or so.
But this is maybe a new ticket. I just wanted to note this down

Hm, is that something we really want to do? I'm not sure that too
many projects do that. I think that users should be able to
re-request email authorization, maybe?

I think that auto-expiry should definitely happen via a plugin, if people want it. I'm wary of that happening on its own.

As for the rest of this, someone just needs to pick up the ticket.

Relatedly, #668 should help us solve this. itsdangerous would be perfect for this.
