Make 'active_recently' check tunable

This value is currently hard coded to 6 months, but I think making it tunable will be useful so that admins themselves can define what is classed as recently active, or even disable that functionality should they see fit.

I know it is tunable from an add-on developer's perspective, in that the code allows for an integer value to be passed to it to define active_recently in our own code, but I think the core functions such as birthdays and auto complete would benefit from similar control.

I think the current implementation is confusing and not particularly good UX.

Auto complete not functioning for some members (inactive) will cause confusion amongst end users and result in erroneous bug reports.
