Subject: disk cache patch

Hi all,

It turns out that enabling libsoup's disk cache is fairly straightforward.

I left it enabled by default in the patch, but I am not proposing that in any way. I am pretty sure this will apply fairly cleanly with other patches, except maybe the change of the size of the togglestat struct.

There is probably a concurrency issue with this, where multiple surf instances open the same cache. Note that I load on startup, and flush after each page load. At least I haven't run into any corruption issues with it, so maybe the worst that comes of that issue is fewer cache hits. Compared to no cache at all, it is an improvement.

I used the command line options "d" and "D".

Beware that a disk cache may hold cache-based trackers for a longer duration than the memory-only cache that is the default. I recommend disabling the cache in any private sessions.
