Webpositive should be included by default in Haiku

Description

Because since hrev44190 wpa_supplicant was included by default in Haiku (see: https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/8585), i see no reason why to keep out WebPositive from nightly builds. When i try a nightly build with full support to wifi, this mean that i want also browse on internet..

The nightlies are primarily for testing purposes, and as such are kept smaller in order to minimize how much everyone has to download that they don't need. If you need it, Web+ can be installed via installoptionalpackage WebPositive from Terminal.

Sure, I know the command "installoptionalpackage".. I'm talking for new users, for those that try Haiku for the first time, for those that don't know how to install an optional package, and a internet browser should be a default package. I guess about the opinion of a new user when try it out a Nightly build: "Haiku is an operative system without browser installed". And today i think that an internet browser is a needed component, more than wpa_supplicant. And without a browser we cannot open the "user guide" and "welcome" document on desktop (see screenshot "Open a Document")

Just my opinion :)

The full set of packages is included in official releases. As I previously said, the nightlies are primarily for development and testing, they shouldn't be the first thing a new user tries.
