context sensitive methods for retrieving display name and ID

      Description

      To implement SAK-7970 (display an alias name for a user in a specific context which is different to the user's Sakai-wide name) one needs a new method User.getDisplayName(context) that tool service code can call to get a display name for the specific context.

      This is necessary because in some cases (search, entitycontentproducer and access servlet views), display names are required when there isn't a specific tool placement from which the context can be derived. However in most cases the service itself knows the context and can supply this to getDisplayName(context).
