[wwwdocs] Document new pth-icm branch

Since we are not sure whether pre-tokenized headers are worth
adding at all (the performance gains are minimal), Gabriel has
started removing that code and the parser instrumentation code we
had in the pph branch.

This will simplify branch maintenance wrt merges, but we are
still not sure whether we will do anything with PTH.  So, I have
created a sub-branch (pth-icm) to hold that code for now.

This patch adds documentation for it.

Committed to wwwdocs.


Diego.
