River2 no repeats

If you subscribe to two feeds that overlap, some articles appear twice in your river, usually very close to each other. It's a waste of bandwidth and it's annoying.

So I added code to the JSON river builder that checks if a title has previously appeared, and if the pref is set true (see below) skips it.

New pref, river2data.prefs.flSkipDuplicateTitles. If true, we enable the title-skipping code. It defaults to false, to preserve existing behavior. I'm turing it on on my River2 server.

I wrote a blog post about this feature.
