Support for external HTML renderers

Today I implemented support for integrating external HTML renderers. Newsbeuter’s internal HTML renderer is not perfect (e.g. it doesn’t support rendering of tables), and so I decided to provide the possibility to choose either between the internal renderer or an external one. That makes it possible to let the HTML content of articles get rendered by text browsers such as lynx, (e)links or w3m. The only disadvantage is that using an external renderer makes displaying a bit slower (since the invocation of external programs takes more time), and that it’s not possible to retrieve all links contained in an article, i.e. the ‘u’ key won’t work anymore in the article view.
