Rate limit mediawiki API endpoint

Jelle van der Waa requested to merge ratelimit_wiki into master

Our API endpoint was being abused by a malicious user which send about 20 req/s, as php-fpm uses a pool of workers this easily over burdens them and also gives the server a constant 100% CPU load.

Applying a rate limit succesfully negates this issue.
