Send Referer header

I was looking at qa-dev logs to see if some of the markup validator's old CSS files were in use by something.  I found that the CSS validator hits some of them, but that was a dead end because it does not send the Referer header that would have revealed where those files are being linked to.

Thus the attached patch which makes it send the Referer header, tested on command line only.  Ok if I go ahead and commit this to CVS?

Done in a different way in CVS.
