I wonder whether DNT makes any sense at all (or is just a giant fake) and
it wouldn't be better to tell ppl. how to add sth like
127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com google-analytics.com
quantserve.com edge.quantserve.com flash.quantserve.com
to /etc/hosts (does anybody know who ships the _unam, __csv & __switchTo5x
Otherwise i guess a cookie filter by cookie name would be faaar more
powerful than DNT or the domain based cookie.
