I see three possible solutions to this:
1. Make Captcha part of the core, with Site.EditForm preconfigured to
display a captcha whenever $EnablePostRequiresCaptcha is set.
2. Leave Captcha as a recipe, but modify the distributed Site.EditForm
to display a captcha whenever $EnablePostRequiresCaptcha is set.
3. Provide a Site.EditForm with the Captcha recipe, and instructions
to tell an admin how to configure it into the system (this actually
may be the status quo).
