A STOP button in the Messenger window is an absolute necessity,
considering all the junk I get sent to me these days...

Do you mean a STOP button to stop network activity, or a STOP button to block
the sender of an email from sending you mail again?

Yes, we do need that. I assume mscott is doing the networking/URL group part of
this, so reassigning to him. cc bienvenu.

It's doubtful that we will have all the pieces in place to pull this off by beta
1. But I'll set for M11 and we'll see.

This is one that would be really nice to have for PR1.

OK, the stop button is hooked up to call the stop method on the web shell.
Unfortunately, this doesn't do us much good for various reasons, the first of
which is that the web shell stop method doesn't interrupt the channels yet
(rpotts is going to check in a fix for that). Secondly, the imap channel ignores
the stop notification. I have a fix for that, but I can't test it until Rick
checks in (which should be tonight). I'd prefer to open new bugs for the various
protocols handling stop. I'll open one for imap.

Stop button is present and selectable/operable in basic form using nov 11
builds.  It has some problems, which will be documented as separate issues
(protocols handling stop have already been logged separately, too).
