BUILD:  Linux 2001-05-02-06

DESCRIPTION:

The "Do not request What's Related information" preference asks to list
domains.  However when I list mit.edu, what's related info is shown for
web.mit.edu and www.mit.edu.

If I list web.mit.edu, then info is _not_ requested for web.mit.edu but is
(correctly) requested for www.mit.edu.

If the preference is meant to apply to hostnames instead of domains, the wording
should be changed.
works, but need for hostname.  Should add this to what's related code or change 
the UI.

REOPEN:
The UI was removed, but I'm concerned about bz's really bug here, which is
incoherence between the usage hostnames and domain names for blacklisting.

This sidebar still lives in the default sidebar panels.rdf loadset.
