Disable downloading content only from remote computers:

disable_remote_download = On|Off
(default: On?)

disable_remote_download = On forbids fopen("", "r"); or fopen("", "r"); or the IPv6 equivalent

disable_remote_download = On allows fopen("http://localhost/", "r"); or fopen("", "r"); or the IPv6 equivalent

affects: url-fopen-wrappers, (p)fsockopen, socket_bind, curl extension, imap extension, others?
