Bug Description

Right now, the REST API to create new SSO accounts only accepts email and password (plus captcha information). We need to be able to send the name so it's set in the user's account personal details.

We need this feature since the Ubuntu One Server is using that info to set user names internally, and that name is used for build info for folder sharing. Right now, we end up having 'Test shared by <empty string>.'

I don't think we'd be able to make the displayname a required parameter in the API (that would break existing clients), but we could at least make it an optional parameter, or provide another method specifically to set the displayname.

Notes for QA:

To test this, the api tests should be performed, making sure that the .register call includes the displayname parameter and the returned account has the correct displayname set.
