Add API to allow setting local storage database path

WebKit-GTK currently has no way to set the path for localStorage databases to be kept. As such, localStorage is never persistent in GTK browsers, such as Epiphany, Midori, luakit, and uzbl (all 4 have been confirmed to suffer from this same issue).

Attached is a small patch against WebKit-GTK 1.4.0 that adds an API to set this path. By default, it will use XDG_DATA_HOME/wekit/databases. However, this can be overridden with the "local-storage-database-path", which accepts a string input.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://people.w3.org/mike/localstorage.html
2. Enter a key/value pair, click setItem()
3. Close and reopen browser, returning to this page

Actual Results:
No items are stored.

Expected Results:
Key/value pair should reappear.

Build Date & Platform:
WebKit-GTK 1.4.0 on Arch Linux

Additional Builds & Platforms:
Should occur on every platform supporting WebKit-GTK.
