Whoops. Ages ago I wrote code that I use locally to utilise the Habeas
headers (they pushed some regular and semi-regular newsletters I get from
very low ham to 0.0 (rounded)); I think I even posted code at the time.
Some time later (but still some time ago ;) I (by mistake) committed the
options, but not the tokenizing code (it seemed unlikely that it would be a
significant gain, since AFAIK the Habeas headers haven't really caught on).
So right now enabling those options will actually have no effect. (Tim's
theory is right, though <wink>).
To remedy this, I've deprecated/experimentalised the Habeas options and
checked in tokenizing code for them. I'll leave it like this for the next
release so that anyone that has enabled them can get a deprecation warning,
and (unless results come back saying that the they see a real gain) remove
them after that.
