GameZoo group membership expiration

This modification allows a group membership to expire after a certain time.

Detailed description:

This modification allows a group membership to expire after a certain time. This period can be defined in the group properties as well as in the individual user profile.

When the membership expires and the user logs in, he/she is automatically moved to the PUN_MEMBER group.

PUN_GUEST, PUN_MEMBER, PUN_MOD and PUN_ADMIN groups are not affected by this mod for security reasons.

WARNING:  A group can EITHER be an auto-promotion target OR have membership expiration. It shouldn't have both features.

Example of what would happen if the warning is ignored.
Imagine this auto-promotion chain: rookies > PUN_MEMBER (10 posts) > snipers (50 posts) > professionals (100 posts) > Léon (500 posts) > Mars (1000 posts) > Chuck (1M posts).

If you set an expire time to the group 'Mars', all the users in that group will be moved to PUN_MEMBER after their membership expires.
But they'll be auto-promoted again first to 'snipers', then 'professionals', 'Léon' and finally 'Mars' because of their post count.
Upon entering the 'Mars' group they'll have a new expire time set, making this feature useless.
