Disabling the "Entered Text" warning in Safari 3!

Safari 3 brought new "warnings" when you close a window, much like most other browsers. I find it useful in certain cases such as when there are multiple tabs open, but the warning that comes up because there is text entered on a form really annoys me. It is possible to disable some of the warnings in the preferences of Safari, but not this one. It is however easy to do so in Terminal:

1. Close Safari.
2. Open Terminal.
3. Paste the following in Terminal:

defaults write DebugConfirmTossingUnsubmittedFormText 0

4. Reopen Safari and the change should be done.

If you want to revert this and go back to having this warning, you can do it by going through the same steps again but with a "1" at the end of the line you paste in Terminal instead of a "0".
