Item4372: Custom META fields that don't have the name key are ignored by TWiki::Store

Since Dakar if you have a custom META without a key name, like the following:

It was picked up by TWiki::Store, could be manipulated and it was preserved when saved.

In the latest build, TWiki::Store is only reading the METAs that have the key name, ignoring the rest.

The following patch solves the issue, but I'm not sure if it's a problem of TWiki::Store that must decide how to put a META in the $meta object, or if the semantic of putKeyed should be changed to just "put" if the META doesn't have the key name.

I put the severity to "Urgent" because this bug broke our main application.
