Review request for kdelibs.


- Changed the implementation such that:
   * DNT:0 is never ever sent to the server since no header supposedly implies OPT-IN
      by default according to the spec listed in the description section.
   * By default the DNT:1 header to OPT-OUT is not sent. The user would have to explicitly
      enable this functionality just like in Firefox 4.
- Updated label to make it clear that we are only sending a header. See new screenshot.


The attach patch adds GUI configuration for the 'Do Not Track' feature that has just been implemented in kio_http[1]. Support for the Do Not Track functionality exists in almost all of the recent versions of the major browsers. The draft spec for this feature can be found at 


Anyhow, the patch also includes cleanup of the code in htmlopts.cpp. Any objections, insights, suggestions are all welcome before I commit this.
