 Signups: move the activation link's key from the query param into the URL

 Some email hosts strip the key from the activation link, or mangle it, or
 prevent it being easily copyable inside their web interfaces. Some web
 servers/configurations, can also be commonly configured to strip query
 parameters from the majority of requests, so hopefully this change will
 alleviate these problems.

 Compatibility is maintained for the older query param-style activation

 Fixes #5831, props r-a-y.
