Bugged scaling on a bunch of spells

In particular, improved PW: S is currently absolutely crap and not worth tanking as a talent.

- Renew has a minor bug that makes it heal for very slightly less than it should (if talented)
- Prayer of Mending has a bug that makes it heal for quite a bit more than it should (if talented)
- Improved PW:S has a bug where the percentage bonus is applied based on the base amount (not the total)
Details at the link. His formulas are wrong as written - he consistently writes things like
1.05*(1.05+1.10)*1.10 when what he means is
...but if you're familiar with the general issues he's discussing you will know what he means.

Improved Shadow Word: Pain
Shadowform and Shadowweaving are still applied multiplicatively.
Misery multiplies just the spellpower amount.
Mana cost reduction talents also appear to stack additively and they round down to an integer mana cost.

The expected value is:
(2230 * 1.15 + (1.5 / 3.5 * 1.88 + 0.4) * 1109) * 1.15 * 1.04 * 1.05 = 4899.
So I'm afraid I can't confirm the PW:S scaling bug. Maybe he was extrapolating from the glyph value? I know for sure that the glyph ignores the 15% scaling.
