can.sub should return null if value is undefined or null #429

Currently can.sub only returns null if the property it is trying to replace is undefined. It should do the same if the value is null.

This bug rears its ugly head in can.Control when templated event handlers get parsed.

Say you have a compute named val1 in your defaults which is null and you have a templated event that looks like '{val1} change. When can.sub is run on that string and the options you get ' change' which will setup a binding on the Control's element for any change event from the DOM (from form elements).

So in this case, you get this very weird behavior of having the handler for a compute change run when form elements are updated.

Example fiddle:
