websites/Gitlab-Issue-Listing-Script#34: Add config toggle for "View in Gitlab" links

Most templates have a link out to Gitlab for whichever page the user is currently viewing.

That's not something we really want in a public mirror, so we should add a config toggle to enable/disable them

Toggle State Changes

I'm actually mildly tempted to say we should remove them rather than add a toggle.

But, they do have a use: I already find it's easier to view/read an issue on my phone in GILS, but if I want to comment on it I need to go to GL, and the link's a helpful way to just hop across.
