Registration form: an optional "Confirm password" field

Description

Continuation of the pull request https://github.com/edx/edx-platform/pull/12226

*Background:* Users often misspell their passwords and can't login a 2d time

*Studio Updates:* None.

*LMS Updates:* an optional "Confirm password" can be shown in the registration form. If the field is present a copy of password must be entered in it.

*Manual test instructions:*
Change lms.env.json:

"password_copy": "required",
`
Open http://127.0.0.1:8000/register and try to enter different "Password" and "Confirm password" and see a validation message.

Yep, that's what I thought—just wanted to confirm since this affects documentation. Specifically, if it's not going to be visible on edx.org, the doc team won't be creating documentation for it (an unfortunate policy IMO but necessary given current constraints).

FYI, thinking ahead to the G release of Open edX, or should add this new feature to a wiki page so it'll be mentioned in the release notes.

It's hidden by default. Not sure who makes the decision to turn it on or not for edx.org.

Won't Do
