syntax for Cite error messages

Cite is not /that/ scary. What's TLC?
I don't see the problem with those messages, though. They look like the
rest of Cite errors. Just through the parser instead of the wfMsg()
calls (which would have its own problems). Seems that ParserBeforeTidy
is too late for doing a recursiveTagParse().
Just replacing the call to Cite::parse() of Cite::error with a call to
MessageCache::singleton()->parse() looks like the best solution.
We don't need to keep the parser context for errors.
And now MessageCache::parse() doesn't pollute the $wgParser state.

Ambitious according to Roan. Roan agrees that having displaytitle as a
page_ field makes more sense *conceptually*. In practice, he prefers
page_props because that avoids a schema change and is still cheap.
Niklas indicated the discussion gave him ideas on how to work towards
resolving these issues.
I agree with the idea of storing the displaytitle in page_props.
