bug#15707: [PATCH 5/8] EWW: Option to always use external-browser for ce

From: Rüdiger Sonderfeld
Subject: bug#15707: [PATCH 5/8] EWW: Option to always use external-browser for certain content.
Date: Fri, 25 Oct 2013 01:44 +0200
User-agent: KMail/4.11.2 (Linux/3.11.0-12-generic; KDE/4.11.2; x86_64; ; )

Emacs can not display videos and has only limited audio support.
Therefore it makes sense to call an external browser for links of that
kind.  This is also a problem because shr turns <video> and <audio>
tags into links to the media.

* lisp/net/eww.el (eww-use-external-browser-for-content-type): New
  customizable variable.
  (eww-render): Handle `eww-use-external-browser-for-content-type'.
  Use \\` to match beginning of string instead of ^.
  (eww-browse-with-external-browser): Provide optional URL parameter.
