Secure session variable generation #7

Modified the wp-config.php script to generate more secure variables.

First, it ensures we are running the app on OpenShift. Then it checks for OPENSHIFT_SECRET_TOKEN or creates it by generating a SHA256 hash of OPENSHIFT_APP_NAME + OPENSHIFT_APP_UUID.

It then generates secure variables by seeding the RNG with that hash and the name of the variable to generate and creating a random string from the RNG.

Will wait to pull this request until testing comes back. An easy way to see the affected variables is to merge this branch: https://github.com/fotioslindiakos/wordpress-example/tree/secure_session_test

It dumps the variables to the index.php page (obviously we won't include that in the merge).

@fotioslindiakos does this commit mean that I don't need to seed my own set of tokens from https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ ?
