        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: robert at roberthogan.net

http://ha.ckers.org/weird/CSS-history.cgi demonstrates how malicious websites
can use the 'visited' element in CSS stylesheets to inspect the user's recent
browsing history. 

The attached patch introduces a webcore setting 'CSSKeepVisitedLinksPrivate'
that allows webkit browsers to disable this behaviour.
