Blocking images in vm-w3m

Bug Description

Robert Marshall says: (19 March 2010)

Unfortunately there's a downside - I used to be able to open spam
without concerning myself that it might download undesirable images - or
notify the sender that there was a real email here. Is there an easy way
of turning off the external link download on a per-message basis?

Whilst the images are being downloaded I see the message

 (Type `C-c C-k' to stop asynchronous process)")

Unfortunately the w3-mode-map isn't active - hoping to call
w3m-process-stop - so I just get 'C-c C-k is undefined' and the downloads

Should there be a key binding to turn off vm-w3m-display-inline-images
(and maybe more) or is there one and I'm missing it?

Thanks for the pointer - I am doing now!
I think that bit can be closed - I still think there needs to be a way to
enable the w3m-process-stop binding to stop the image download

There's a file called CHANGES at the top level of the dist tarballs - it
either needs updating - maybe just a line saying it relates to the 7.x
series and a hyperlink to the new ChangeLog - or dropping

Still to be done: w3m-process-stop to be made to stop the image download.
