[tor-dev] [GSoC] Vidalia - Week 6

I have created the Hidden Service plugin. Currently, the plugin loads the
list of hidden services from the torrc file and displays it in a custom
widget consisting of line-edits and spinbox inside a groupbox. This is then
displayed in a vertical layout in the container widget's scroll-area.

The values of HiddenServiceDir and HiddenServicePort are displayed in
line-edits. If the Hidden Service had been activated previously, the
hostname string is fetched from the file and displayed inside the plugin.

The user can remove a service by selecting the corresponding checkbox and
clicking the "-" button. The user can also edit a service by changing the
values in line-edit and clicking the Apply button. This would change the
values in the torrc file.

I'm behind schedule by a few days. By this week, I will implement adding
new hidden services to the plugin. The UI needs more work. I had originally
alloted Week 7 for code cleanup.

I have linked to a screenshot of the existing UI below. The "-" button is
grayed out until a checkbox is selected. The Apply button is enabled only
if any text has been edited. The stray TextLabel will be removed. I'm just
using it for testing.
