How to exclude Piwik visits using a cookie?

currently you can't change the cookie name for exclude a visitor
it is easily possible to set a cookie named "piwik_ignore"

solution:
let the admin choose a name for the cookie and/or path

I honestly don't see the relavance for this. Why would one want to change the name of the cookie if it does it's work?

in google analytics you can select the cookie name (see To exclude traffic by Cookie Content)

We should make this configurable to be consistent with login_cookie_name and (visitor) cookie_name in global.ini.php.

At the same time, we should also start signing cookies as a pre-caution against anti-tracking cookies.

Attachment: Adds "exclude_webmaster_cookie_name" to global.ini.php and adjusts code.
