Keep excluded reviewer status in merge

When merging duplicate reviewer accounts, if one of the accounts not marked as the primary account in the merge has an excluded reviewer status, this is lost in the merge.

As the excluded status is not visible from the merge duplicate users screen, this means that without significant extra checking at every merge we will lose the excluded reviewer status more often than not.  Particularly for problem reviewers who will just create new accounts if they've been excluded!

Please change this so that the excluded reviewer status is preserved in a merge - if all of the accounts are for the same person and we have chosen to exclude them previously, then we wish to continue excluding them after the merge.

At a minimum the excluded status should be visible in the merge users dialog so that we can choose the excluded account to remain the primary.
