Awesome Screenshot URL tracking and niki-bot

UPDATE: Awesome Screenshot 3.7.12 now offers an 'opt-out' setting to address this (but it's on by default) - read my new article here.

Back in June, my OSSEC logs alerted me to some web crawling activity by a crawler with a user-agent of 'niki-bot'. Chances are if you grep or analyse your web logs, you've seen it too.
