CAPTCHA should be pluggable in JIRA

[CAPTCHA|] is supposed to stop spam and other automated nefarious usage of systems.

But there is an arms race of [CAPTCHA breaking|] and then coming up with [new and better CAPTCHA solutions|].

IN addition, like many others, JIRA's current CAPTCHA can be difficult for humans to read, see JRA-16559 .

So if JIRA had a pluggable CAPTCHA capability, it would be possible for JIRA to more quickly benefit from available advances in CAPTCHA protection without a change to the core product.
