Much like #101 -- Should we support for optional (off-by-default) captcahs for registrations on pods.

This came up today's (9th July 2022) Yarn.social video call.

It would be the same implementation as what it typically used on the Support and Abuse Report views: https://twtxt.net/support (for example).

Why? Slow down and/or stop the bot accounts.

Let's discuss!

I find really simple local-only solutions like this defeat most bots below the "big enough a target for custom-built bots" level. I can't see a good reason not to do this, if it both respects privacy by not embedded external garbage and doesn't require a lot of human effort/time to solve.
