Pass through source for mirror sites

Description

A mirror site should really be read only. But, how should an edit request be dealt with?

Granted the mirror site could have the templates patched to remove the edit link. But this wouldn't stop spammers. Also, this wouldn't solve the problem of mirrors that also contain some of their own content.

The way to detect that a page is mirrored, is that there is a 'source' metadata item, containing the URL of the page on another guide.

This should be passed through to the templates, which can do the necessary.

This change will have no effect on guides which are not mirrors.
