Description Terje Bless 2003-04-18 16:29:56 UTC
To aide servers who sniff for browser User-Agent strings and deliver tailored
content, the Validator should allow you to override it's User-Agent string.

Targetting 0.7.0.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2004-09-09 17:54:35 UTC
Given I'm uncomfortable with this feature, and I don't really recall any
requests for this feature since the bug was initially opened, I think just
nuking it is the way to go. Resolving WONTFIX.
