Armando Pérez Marqués Added 'flatblock_default' template tag
This 'flatblock_default' template tag allows providing a default block of
text for the flatblock, and not using the slug for this. Also, the content
of the flatblock is ready-to-edit by final users, and allowing the site
builders to specify suitable (and even ready to use) default content.

This reverts commit a1273dd.
Armando Pérez Marqués Rework of the default block content feature
Introduces a new parameter to the `flatblock` tag: 'with-default'. When
this parameter is present, the tag parses the template until the
`end_flatblock` tag is found, and everything between the tags is saved
for later rendering and used as default content for the FlatBlock
instance if it doesn't exists.

Also introduces two new settings:
`FLATBLOCKS_STRICT_DEFAULT_CHECK`: If True, when the tag founds a
Flatblock instance that matches the slug but its fields are empty,
the tag fields the instance's fields with the defaults values, if
situation occurs then the instance is saved to the DB with the
defaults values.
Armando Pérez Marqués Changes and tests:
- If a block name is specified in a template variable, and it is not
  allowed to autocreate blocks, but a default was specified, a dummy
  (unsaved) flatblock is created with the default values, and then
- The default cache timeout for flatblocks is specified as a setting,
  `FLATBLOCKS_CACHE_TIMEOUT`, and defaults to Django's cache timeout.
  This allows to specify different a timeout value than the default
  cache one, and without setting it on every template tag call.
- Added syntax check and tests for the case where more than one argument
  is passed to the templatetag after the `with-default` keyword.
- Miscelaneous tests
