Description (last modified by mikeperry)

Not sure if we want to do this or not, but it may be a good idea to do better referrer spoofing instead
of just blocking referrer all together (which is disabled by default because some sites refuse to serve
images/media with no referer). The RefSpoof extension has a mode to set the referrer to the document root
of a site. This code may be useful to assimilate, or we can just encourage people to install that extension
if the default behavior doesn't work for them. It is possible this "set to root" site will still break
sites that expect image refs to come from other paths on the site only... In this case, refspoof's
complete functionality may be a good idea.

This is implemented in 'master', however, we probably want the mechanism from JonDoFox, at least as an additional option.
