change the wiki page for 0.5.

Is something different foreseen for 0.6, whether suppressing the 150 entries
limitation or the 255 char limitation?

The goal is to store Merkaartor preferences this way, for people having
different machines. As we have already more than 100 prefs, it doesn't seem
right to use 2/3 of the available entries just for Merkaartor.
The other idea was to use one entry with a serialized preference list, but
that will use more than 255 chars.
