Add the ability to disable a user instead of delete the user

Add the ability to disable a user from the Application Administrator: ts_status=2.  When administrative logging logs this operation, it should distinguish the act of an administrator doing the disabling versus a too many failed login attempts causing the disabling.

The process of removing a user from SBM is fraught with complexity.  We have added references to the User in administrator to know where the user is used throughout the system.  While working the process to deleting the user, it would useful to disable the user from logging in.  
 
There are also times when it is desired to merely disable (or temporarily remove access) the user for months at time.

I'm sure you already know this .... it's possible to effectively disable a user and cause them to not consume a license by setting the TS_ACCESSTYPE to 0.

Paul, 

There are issues with item ownership and field selections when ts_accesstype = 0.  The disable user function is easier to manage when access needs to be revoked quickly.  At some point, however, the workflow process of removing user access from SBM needs to be complete.
