#3321: Remove active duplicates from Events API

 This is related to #2720 and #3027, but distinct.

 There are cases where a meetup organizer will accidentally create
 duplicate events, but not realize it, and leave all of them active
 (instead of deleting the duplicates so that there's only 1 total).

 For example:
 * https://www.meetup.com/Puyallup-WordPress-Meetup/events/245787617/
 * https://www.meetup.com/Puyallup-WordPress-Meetup/events/245788104/
 * https://www.meetup.com/Puyallup-WordPress-Meetup/events/245787574/

 That has the effect of pushing all other upcoming events out of the Events

 When the `official-wordpress-events` plugin pulls new events from the
 meetup.com API, though, we can detect if they have the same title and date
 as existing events, and just ignore them, instead of saving them.

 The most efficient way to do this may be to add a unique key constraint
 over multiple columns, rather than trying to do something in code.
