This is tied in with the history writing setting. The idea was that if
you are OK with tor writing out these things, then you are ok with it
saving your history and vice-versa. 

However, this idea may be slightly flawed since you could be concerned
about history disclosure attacks from regular websites you visit.. So
maybe it should be a seperate option..
