Bug Description

I've set ShapeImages=false in my scope's ini file, and yet the images are still shaped. In particular, images with a transparent background get a shaped frame drawn around them, which looks terribly ugly.

The ShapeImages key is exposed by libunity-scopes. It looks like the dash isn't doing anything with it: I don't see any reference to it in ScopeStyle.qml.

I'd like confirmation from design that this is a wanted option, as far as i understood the shaping is our "mark" and it can not be disabled.

@James that's corect, I checked this with Albert yesterday and he confirmend the Dash doesn't handle it. It's not totally clear at the moment but it looks like we never intended to support such flag. I also asked design to clarify if we intend to support something like this (in which case Dash needs to be fixed) or if we should remove if from the docs.
