Since people are starting to make pull requests for anything, I should join the fun.

This pull changes how passwords are hashed on the board, making use of the password hashing API that appeared in PHP 5.5 with a compatibility library for past versions of PHP.

This also has the side effect of bumping the minimal version to 5.3.7 or greater and the installer has been edited to reflect this.

This change converts all ABXD passwords when the user logs in again so users should log out and log in to have their password changed to the new hashing.

Note: It also blanks pss on every user when converting the password but I don't know what it could affect on the board.

Make use of PHP 5.5 password hashing API on the board.
The current implementation also converts all legacy passwords to the current one.
If PHP 5.5 is not installed on the server, a compatibility library is used.
Require PHP 5.3.7 or greater on install.
This is required by the password compatibility library.

Fixed an obvious issue and restored pss. I'm not going to risk it so I'm leaving it alone.

Restore pss on editprofile.php
Forgot about that one.

You broke the installer by the way because I tried to install your ABXD version here and it says 'You need php 5.3.7 or greater and you are running 5.3.27' which is an obvious bug...
