Add test about the portrait retrieval complying with the datamodel definition of a portrait

Whitespace changes

Fix uncomplete test description and simplify single -procs line.

use public interface instead of private one

Remove ns_parseurl from list of tested procs, as not being a openacs proc will trigger an error at load time

Test also the portrait api (exploit the fact that we are already creating bogus users), move helper procs to the beginning so they can be found by the testing machinery

Trim whitespace

improve testcases by removing useless expr commands

Fix test on system having as IPv4 address in the config file

Rework of this tests

- use dict idioms instead of array, so we don't have to unset all the time

- use new user api when appropriate

- fix test when we try to reuse the username of somebody who was previously banned.

This is no longer possible and is now reflected in the test

Revert massive replacement of empty list creation sentences. The use of '[list]' instead of '{}' adds semantics that could be used for performance improvements in the future, such as using a different internal representation. There is already work in this direction, avoiding the generation of the string representation during comparison of empty strings (huge thanks to Stefan Sobernig for the pointer: https://core.tcl.tk/tcl/info/44527c632ed609c2).

ad_proc reform:

- use nsf::proc for defining ad_procs, when nsf::proc is available

- nsf::proc is part of the environment of XOTcl2 and provides

an efficient, C-implemented argument parser that can replace

the scripted *__arg_parser of OpenACS.

- The benefits are performance and reduced memory consumption.

* Simple functions (where the calling overhead was a large

part of the execution times can become several times faster

(e.g. db_name is 3x faster, cookie handling is 2x faster),

for functions with much db-activities the percentage will

be less.

* The memory consumption (RSS) of a site like OpenACS.org

is reduced by about 15%.
