Item3801: Propose adding $admin attribute to USERINFO rather than appending "isAdmin()" to $group output

%USERINFO{format="$groups"}% appends isAdmin() at the end of group membership list if the user is in TWikiAdminGroup. Sven explained that he added that to confirm user is a part of admin group even if it is renamed, or even if groups are defined outside TWiki.

The problem is that the isAdmin() tag is appended without a comma delinator so it could potentially confuse the last item in the list.

I'd propose creating a new $admin attribute for USERINFO that simply returns 1 if user is member of admin group and 0 if not.

done, though I'm returning 'true' or 'false'
