[wix-users] v4: Using the WixUI extension

The person that created the discussion that led to that issue seemed to
have gotten it working.
ui:WixUI is only in preview.1, the v3 method of UIRef was still in place
for preview.0. You're not going to be able to mix and match extensions and
the core toolset between different builds right now. I don't know what's
supposed to happen in that scenario, but it silently ignoring extensions
that couldn't be loaded is possible.
