[feedback from testers still welcome as usual!]

A new option was added in this alpha (experimental) release:
  --delayed-type-check-always (-%N2)

This option prevent httrack from making assumptions on file types according to
their extensions ; that is, considering that ".html" is always an HTML file,
".zip" always a ZIP file, ".gif" always a GIF file and so on..

This experimental mode can potentially slowdown a bit a mirror (but in many
cases, it has no impact on the overall speed, because the default bandwidth
limits are generally the main speed factor), but has several advantages:
- it prevent bugs caused by misnamed URLs (such as .html generating binary,
because of underlying script)
- it allows to gently handle redirects from regular URLs (.html, .gif ..)
- it allows to rewrite broken links into external references when "no error
page" is enabled

This eighth release also fixes two bugs:
- codebase bugs
- URL parsing fixes
