#121 add a "blanked" crunch reason


Add a "blanked" crunch reason for pages blocked with +handle-as-empty-document when handle-as-empty-doc-returns-ok is set.

I couldn't log into sourceforge earlier today. Turns out the problem was default.action has
{+block{Site-specific block pattern matches.} }

It used to be trivially easy to debug this type of problem using HttpFox, but 0.8.4 doesn't work with FF 3.6.3 and the current version of HttpFox
a) just gives the result code, not the full result (eg. "200" v. "200 Request blocked by Privoxy")
b) gives a result code of "(Error)" for https requests regardless of Privoxy blocking the URL with a 200 or 403 status

So... add a new crunch reason of "Blanked" to make it easier to debug these kinds of problems.

old log message:
Crunch: Blocked: sourceforge.trk.sodoit.com:443

new log message after adding
{ +block{ssl sites} +handle-as-empty-document -handle-as-image }
to user.action:
Crunch: Blanked: sourceforge.trk.sodoit.com:443

Dunno if you want to keep all the
log_error(LOG_LEVEL_HEADER, "Returning status: %s", rsp->status);
log messages in - that was my first cut at figuring out the problem.

    Now that the Firefox bug is supposedly fixed, I hope we can remove the handle-as-empty-doc-returns-ok option before the next release.

    Also I'd say the crunch reason for blocked requests is always "blocked", no matter how they are blocked. If we were to mention how requests are blocked, I think it should be done independently of the crunch reason.
