splitted from Bug 363621

RemovePagesFromHost is doing work in reverse mode, it is selecting places with annotation set to expire never, not deleting all visits, and removing annotations for not selected places... some strange kind of things happens there, we should revert it to the correct ordered work:

- find places within host range
- delete all visits for those places
- expire annotation
- delete dangling items in moz_places
- fix frecency
- use a general batch observer call (for perf, since we are deleting a bunch of urls)

this fixes the "wrong way" behaviour
onDeleteURI single calls have been removed for perf, since this is deleting urls in bunch we should only fire a Begin/EndUpdateBatch

Attached patch patch + test (obsolete) — Splinter Review
added a full dedicated test, FAIL with old function, PASS with new function

the test adds a bunch of visits, then checks that pages have been removed correctly and that annotations were not deleted by error

- created a new internal method RemovePagesInternal
- RemovePage, RemovePages, RemovePagesFromHost will now end up into that method (RemovePage calls RemovePages), good for mantainability and code size win

Hrm, it's irksome that it takes a delimited string instead of an array. But that'd add yet another iteration over the set, so not worth it really.

Please add a comment that this method does not do notification.

r=me otherwise

Drivers: this is an important fix, actual code can cause dataloss of annotations and privacy concern since some url is not really removed from history.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.
