Quickie: Easily add a secure contact form to your per-site user profiles

On several sites I've seen per-site user profiles that have a link to PM this user, which leads to the user account page. Often this is less than ideal, because it means users have to leave the familiarity of your site for the Wikidot account page, which they may never have seen before. The alternative is to setup a MailForm module on your profile:_template page with to="%%created_by%%". I've tested this over at RoaringApps, and it works a-okay, only sending the message to the specified user.
